Greetings to all. I performed a system restore and when the machine rebooted setup is starting services was displayed on my screen literally for hours. I decided to restart my comp and when I did this it stalled at the same point but with error message The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation. Did that,same result and error message. I have tried Safe modes with a resulting Windows cannot complete installation in Safe Mode. To continue installing Windows,restart the computer. Other F8 options have had the same results.
Thank you for your time and offered solutions
