VMware vSphere ESXi Bundle Update Problem

Hi All,
We have the HP variant of vSphere ESXi (ESX4i)installed onto a USB Key. That was created by overwriting the supplied ESXi 3.5 using the downloadable ISO.
There's an ESX4i update bundle available. When I tried to apply this using the vihostupdate.pl it fails with the error:
Unable to create, write or read a file as expected.I/O Error (28) on file : [Err
no 28] No space left on device

I looked into the ESXi itself and there seems to be around 25MB left on the root partition.
A rerun of the install fails with a different error:
Install operation failed: Insufficient space available on host (require 4 MB and
only 0 MB available).
Which indicates 25MB is more than enough for the update.
Anyone had this issue and resolved it, or even successfully updated the bundle?

Not had chance to test this. looks like we'll go to SSD disks in the hosts anyway.
