This is a fresh installation of a formatted hard drive. During installation from the WinXP cd-rom, after a few times where it asked me for certain .dll files and .sys files, which couldn't be located. The olny CD I had was my WinXP cd, so I had to skip them. When it completed that, it took me to the actual installation screen, when I got there, it says the file ASMS needs to be found on the WinXP Cd. Is there a specific directory I need to look for the file? (I only looked at E: ) Why do you think the files could be missing, (it is an official CD) Is there a reason why they can't be found or which directory is it supposed to be in.. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
