I recently decided to re-install windows on my laptop. It went fine all the way through till the actual installation of the new windows (ie deleted the old partition and made a new one). The problem is that it is now saying:-

"The file 'asms' on Windows Home Edition Service Pack 2 CD is needed.
type the path where the file is located, and then click OK"

I have pressed shift+F10
Typed regedit.exe and press Enter
On the file menu. I've pressed Load Hive
but I cannot find %Windir%\System32\Config\System.sav ( to load)

Could you please tell me where I can find this? I have tried putting in my Windows Disk and also the Service Pack 2 Disk.
