I applied for asylum and didn't have the interview with an immigration inspector. I won the dv lottery while waiting for the asylum interview and on the 8th of March wlill have already the interview for the adjustment of status(I-485). What should I do with the asylum application now, should I withdraw it or not yet?Can that influence somehow the dv lottery/aos interview?
You need to speak personally to an experienced immigration attorney, with the facts that you are giving in your question It is difficult to establish if you would qualify to adjust with the Diversity Visa, it is important to take into consideration that if at some point in time you accrued illegal presence that possibility could be ruined.
If you already have an attorney, these questions would be better suited for him/her. Your attorney has all the details regarding your case, and is in a much better to address your concerns than the attorneys here on Avvo.

You should speak to an experienced immigration lawyer to make sure you are admissible as a permanent resident. In some circumstances it will be better to adjust your status based on your asylum application because the waivers for inadmissibility are much more generous.
