Unable to upgrade to service pack 3 XP in Boot camp

in Mac Software edited January 2014

Not sure if this has been ask before. I've installed Windows XP professional (service pack 2) a while ago on my macbook pro so that I can use CAD and Revit.

Every time I try to get windows to update to service pack 3 through windows updates in the control pannel it gets to a certain early stage and this error occurs:

This seems to be a problem due to the mac partition I think as I've looked around to solve the problem but nothing seems to work. I've tried changing the AppleMNT.sys file in the drivers folder as one message board suggests but sadly that file does not exist on my windows partition.

If anyone else has had these problems I'd be very appreciative of a solution. Thanks in advance!
