I would suggest setting the scope up in the approximate EQ Home/Polar aligned position (even though you can't actually align) and then slewing/GoTo an area of the sky that can be seen. That should be close enough for ASIAIR to platesolve. The idea is to have the internal mount coordinates reasonably close to the actual sky you want to test solve... so set that up any way your mount requires.
For example, my RST-135 has a 'Home' position that point West at the Horizon, I would set the scope in that approximate location, forego any alignment, and just slew/goto an open area of sky for the test solve.
I'm just not sure what ASIAIR tolerance is for solves, or if it can do a 'blind' solve... so just try to have the actual mount coordinates somewhat in the neighborhood of your solve.
Also, take a Preview image using the same exposure length as your ASIAIR Solve (In mount/telescope settings), with your Histogram set to Auto(stretch). Make sure you can see Stars, and they are reasonably focused (doesn't have to be perfect focus, but they should be solid dots, not donuts)
