    The actual problem I am encountering is that I get a "asms file is needed" message and I have no idea what to do from here. I investigated several threads that my search took me to but the threads have been closed and I didnt find and solutions. I have the original WXP pro install disc and SP2 & SP3. I am not at all PC savvy so I need help with what to do from here. Can someone please help?

    Is that an actual XP Pro CD, and is it XP original or XP SP1?

    If you've installed a new hard drive, it needs to be formatted before you can install XP Pro in it.

    The XP Pro CD does all the work - if that's what you have.
