Not sure exactly what is going on on your end but other than the warning when the installer first starts about the game not being tested on the OS, I never had any problems installing BF2 on either x64 Vista or x64 Windows 7.

Might be a good idea to uninstall BF2 completely (registry and all) and start over. Instructions on how to uninstall here,

ANSWER
So I can't even find BF2 in my Registry after deleting the folders manually.....

My fault, forgot you're on x64. You'll find the BF2 entries in the Wow6432Node.

So I reinstalled BF2, cleared out the registry. Installed sucessfully, but I'm still getting a patching error when patching 1.41 @ Swiffplayer.dll.

Here is the patching history:

Well it's finally working. After uninstalling it once more, clearing out the registry and then installing it. I went into safe mode and patched it successfully. All is working well along with PB. Thanks for the help.

Have you tried to run the updater from evenbalances website?
I would run the update then reboot and run it again just to see if its all there.

I got mine fixed aswell, you have to manually replace the .htm files in the /pb/ folder in Bf2, then run the setup.exe.
