I recently came back from a Europe trip for five months,
and when I arrived home I took my computer system from out of the garage
from which it was stored and tried booting it back up.
For some reason my hard drive died. It wasnt detecting it on my bios and
whenever I tried to load from it, I was going a harddrive boot error message.
Anyways I went out and bought a new hard drive, replaced the old one and attempted
to reinstall XP Home edition. I have an XP Home Edition Service pack 2 disc burned
that I bought from a computer technician a while ago for my Cicero when it was giving
me problems. The installation went fine until I got to the part where it was trying to
actually install XP.
It gave me a message that said
"The file "asms" on WinXP Home Edition Service Pack 2 CD is needed"
and below it was the directory leading to
Now, I dont know where the hell the asms file is or what directory I should have to
type in. And I also dont ever remember coming across this problem before when I tried
to reinstall windows using this CD. Right now I had to reassemble my old computer and use
it until I can figure out how this works, which is what I have done and how I am able to post this thread. But I hate this computer...
