Problem with asms files

5 posts in this topic

Hello!

First - it is amazing guys, you deserve everything good, you work really hard for this. Im reading from since 2 days, Im amazed :)

I have a problem with usb_prep, and couldnt solve this - read nearly everything, but still couldnt solve - so I need some help from you guys.

I just got a Vaio TZ91 japanase, with only a 64gb SSD disk, no cdrom, no floppy.

So I want to install windows XP from USB key! It is really fun trying to do this :)

1- My laptop boots from USB stick

2- I choose TXT setup

3- I create partition C, but not format, quit with F3

4- Again I choose TXT setup, this time I choose C and format with quick NTFS format, and it copies files

5- I choose GUI setup, it starts but then I get error:

Windows couldnt find the file: asms

and it is trying to look for it (I will write exact error next time, now formatted usb again)

GLOBAL/ROOT??/&WINNT&-LS

something

If I change this:

U:/&WINNT&-LS

U is my usb stick

then it accepts, abut asks again for another file.

Even I enter manually U:/&WINNet... everytime - after a while, it couldnt find files like NT5.CAT etc

I think the problem is, in GUI mode it cant get the i386 files folder, what I do wrong, do you have any idea? :)

Thanks a lot from now on!

Best

Edit: I use a HP 4GB USB Stick as for usb drive

Quite strange .... It should look in the Root for folder $WIN_NT$.~LS

What did make the difference .... Japanese .... ?

May be you can Change some BIOS Setting ?

You can also check what is the actual foldername written at the harddisk,

which you can find out by Booting with BartPE and have a look with a FileManager.

What Type of XP Source do you use ( XP Type, Slipstream Method, Removed Folders and Language ) ?

Concerning file asms-problem, I solved this by manually copying ASMS-folder and contents from source to USB-stick.

That solved the problem. Hope this will help also for you.

USB_MultiBoot2.cmd copies the COMPLETE XP Source

including ASMS-folder to Folder $WIN_NT$.~LS on USB-Drive.
