Tried repairing C drive, but can't finish the installation

I was referred to this forum after I was being helped in the "virus, trojans, etc..." forum. I was asked to repair my C drive after running combofix and kept getting a blue screen. Everything was going great with the repair until the reboot to finish the "install or repair" and it asked for me to insert the XP Home Edition Service Pack 1 disk. That disk is already in the computer. It does not give me the option to "browse" for the D drive, nor does it show up in the drop down menu where you can type in the path. It is asking for the "asms" file on Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 1.
It defaults to the path: globalroot/device/cdromo/i386.
Any suggestions? :)
I have one file that I really need to get from my C drive, or else I would just F-disk the computer.
