The File 'asms' on Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 1 CD is needed
Trying to do a 'repair' re-install of Windows XP Home Edition. I get through the loading of files and into the first installation window of Windows XP and then get the system windows asking for [b]'The File ASMS on Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 1 CD is needed. Type the path where the file is located and then click OK/B]'. The text in the path text box is 'GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROM0\I386'. The ASMS file (directory) is in the 1st level directory of I386 on the CD. This is also a valid OEM CD with the Hologram. The system has two CD drives; one is a CD drive and the other is a DVD/CD RW drive. It seems it is not communicating with the drive properly. Basically, I've tried to do it about any way I can think of. Even tried using each of the CD drives. I'm running out of ideas and really don't want to lose the 'not backed up' data on the HD with a full re-install of Windows. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc. Would be very grateful for any input!

The machine is not communicating with the CD-ROM.

When the above error message appears, I type: Shift+F10 to enter a command session.

Type: regedit.exe at the prompt.

Highlight the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entry.

Go to the File menu and choose Load Hive.

Then, load %Windir%\System32\Config\System.sav
and gave it a name as "Test".

Then, I try to find this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Test\ControlSet1\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} (BUT I DON'T HAVE "SET1" AND I DO HAVE SET2 AND SET3) ?????


Delete UPPERFILTERS and LOWERFILTERS keys. (I DELETED THESE FILTERS BEFORE I TRIED ATTEMPTING THE REPAIR)

Do the same for ControlSet2 and any other numbered ControlSet keys you see.

Exit regedit.


Please help!!!!
Thanks...
