Repair install of xp prof locking up with the following message: Tags: Hewlett Packard CD-Rom Windows XP Last response: November 23, 2011 6:00 PM in Windows XP Share lonejack November 23, 2011 3:10:10 PM My HP Compaq desk top stopped recognizing my cd and dvd drives. I tried to run repair using my XP Professional with service pack 3. During the repair install I receive the following message: Files Needed The file 'asms' on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 CD is needed. Type the path where the file is located, and then click OK. Copy files from: GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROMO\I386 Using the explore feature on my laptop the disk has this file but I can not get it to copy. I don't want to lose all of my files with a fresh install. Any help is greatly appreciated.
