Thread-topic: Problem: asms folder is needed when setup winxp HVM
Some hints based on what I encountered ....
a. My success was with XP/Pro ... YMMV with XP/Home
b. I chose to use an iso file rather than CD so if you are using a CD, try a file
c. I had my install keep hanging at "Starting Windows" and found this page on the RH Site:
    Might be a different symptom for the same problem so worth trying.
I found the X based console useless as I can't find any hint as to how to do a Ctrl-Alt-Del via pure X. Use VNC as your basic console ... VNC->X is fine.

Subject: [Xen-users] Problem: asms folder is needed when setup winxp HVM

I has a problem of installing windows xp home edition in fedora core 7 with xen 3.1.0.


I am using virtual machine manaegr to install winxp home. Things went well until a message pop up as follows


“The file ‘asms’ on Windows XP Home Editio CD-ROM is needed”


A locaton box below this message shows s path




I checked my cd, there is an ‘asms’ folder in ENGLISH\WINXP\HOME\I386, but this HVM seems not able to

find this folder.


Has anybody faced this problem? Any advice is appreciated.


Best regards,

Hu Jia Yi
