Submission + - Why doesn't our Solar System have a super-Earth?

StartsWithABang writes: In our own Solar System, there are the four gas giant worlds, the four inner rocky worlds, and then a bunch of icy and rocky bodies smaller than those. But in other solar systems, there’s a whole class of worlds in between the size of Earth and Neptune, called either super-Earths or mini-Neptunes. This class not only exists, but it’s the most common type of planet in the Universe, to the best of our knowledge. Here's why we think we don't have one (now), owing to the unique, migratory history of our own planets.

If you are getting the 4mb error this is usually due to an old version of bootcamp in Leopard. If you are running Leopard you need at least boot camp 2.1 http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/application_updates/bootcampwindowsxpdriversupdate21.html .

Although not required you can install 2.2 http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/application_updates/bootcampdriversupdate22forwindows.html as well.

If you are running Snow Leopard then you might want to check out http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3841 and disabling this driver until you get SP's installed.

Then again all these problems could just be due to running SP0/1 .
