Hello. I restored my C drive today and during the windows installation my computer froze forcing me to shut it down. Now when i restart my computer I get this "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation." Any idea what I should do? Thanks

Were you using the recovery partition on your hard drive or a restore cd/dvd to restore your computer?

I was using the recovery partition. I never made any recovery disks for it.

You're going to have to access the recovery partition and restart the system restore. It will usually be a key you press just after the BIOS screen and will be different depending on what brand of laptop you own.

I've had that problem before at work, on a laptop I was restoring and forgot to plug in to an AC power source. I simply started over from the recovery partition and it worked fine the second time. Let me know how yours turns out.

Finally was able to find it. Took me awhile cause it would not show up when I hit the key. I guess it was hidden somehow. Thanks a lot.
