“The file ‘Asms’ on Windows XP Professional CD-ROM is needed” error message when you install Windows XP

Solution by Microsoft here

or you could try replacing “CdRom0\I386” to “d:\I386”

The latter worked for me. Cheers!

p/s: The effing window would popup near a hundred times throughout the installation process, so I recommend utilizing Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V
