This is the non-limited edition game purchased in a brick n mortar shop.
Origin install seems to work perfectly. It patches itself correctly as well.
What does not
Installing BF3. I've tried from both the DVD and online. If you set windows to xp it complains about old version, if set to win7 it complains you aren't admin and bugs out.
Also tried linking the install from my windows partition, origin cried that BF3 wasn't installed. When I have more time (and hard drive space free) I'll copy over the install and try again.
What was not tested
The game itself. It uses a browser as a front end as well so might be an idea to get windows firefox installed in the wine prefix as well.

Keep in mind that before you can install Origin you have accept an EULA that entitles the software to crawl through your wineprefix logging everything. I highly recommend both removing the "Z" link to your / in winecfg and installing BF3 in it's own prefix.
