Hi samba,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer...

"The file 'Asms' on Windows XP Professional CD-ROM is needed" error message when you install Windows XP"

I found an article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base that dealt specifically with you error. Here is the link : Knowledge Base Article

I hope this helps...

Open Windows Explorer and right click the "C:" drive - or drive you are in question of. Select properties... should be at the bottom...

The info displayed will give the file system near the top....
