When trying to install SP3 on Win2k PC with a small FAT
utility partition (Dell) I get the error:
"The file c:\ntldr is open or in use by another
application. Close all other applications and click on
Retry" - Clicking retry is no good; no other apps are
The SP starts and extracts the files just fine but will
always abort with the error. The FAT partition is not
assigned a drive letter and only contains Dell diagnostic
utilities. The OS is of course on an NTFS partition. Thsi
was teh way Dell shipped them and few got "out" before we
started doing the OS ourselves.
