    Since it's a dvd, wouldn't both games be on that single disc?

    Shouldn't it automatically install Northern Strike when you install whatever's on the disc?

    Most dvd disc games that include expansions have the Expansion install option grey-ed out on the auto-run menu until you install the main game. Try popping the disc back in and waiting for the auto-run menu.

    Did you install BF2142 from the disc, or from EA link?

    The Northern Strike booster pack just adds maps, weapons, and vehicles to the game. You don't actually have to play Northern Strike as a separate game, like you would for BF2 Special Forces. You should automatically have those maps installed. Try looking for a Northern Strike map (Bridge at Remagen, Port Bavaria, or Liberation of Leipzig)

    Also, what does the "Upgrade" option do?

    It's already on your computer.

    It's not a standalone game, it just unlocks more things for your 2142.

    As Knitewolf said, the biggest things you will notice until you are a high enough level to unlock the new weapons and items; is that now you can join those 3 new maps.

    It's more of a Booster Pack, than an expansion.

    It says Northern Strike - Booster Pack, right? It's a booster pack. :)

    Have you tried searching the disk?

    Put the disk in, close down the auto run.
    Go to My Computer
    Right click on the BF disk and click 'Explore'
    Then try looking around there for something like a Northern Strike folder. If there is one, there will probably be an application in there which when you click should install NS.

    Good luck, hope I could have helped :)
