Hi there,

I'm running Parallels 5.0 on a BootCamp partition of my MacBook Pro's Snow Leopard OX, and piggybacked on it,
I run Windows XP;

When I installed Parallels, it created an F: drive in my BootCamp Partition, of size 0Kb.

When Windows XP's updates wants to install sp3, for some unknown reason, it tries to do it on F: , as opposed
to doing it on BOOTCAMP C:\;
I get a an error message,
"Space not enough for installation to proceed;
Drive Not Formatted, do you want to format F: "

When I answer yes, the Format window pops up, showing F as having the size of my Mac's Main HD !,
and I cannot format F:, and I'm not even sure that IF I did, I would be erasing my Mac's Main HD !!!

How can I GET RID OF F: ?

Thank you for your time,
