I thought "...what the heck?!" and stuck the DVD copy in the second disk drive.Worked like a charm! Rinse then dry with kitchen roll.Only other thing I can think of is a hardware fault (edge connectors, plugs & sockets etc).It would be worth formatting before trying again after attending I386\asms Download When you receive the error message, press SHIFT+F10 to start a command session.2.

You just click a button and within a few minutes, BAM, it's fixed. Asms File Download if you try to copy the ASMS file to other places from the CD, you will get an error, since the ASMS is not complete in the CD. But after getting the Windows Fix, the SFC /scannow is working perfectly.
