My emachines MiniNetbook laptop has been giving me issues lately (not a surprise since it's been trouble from 4days now). I decided today I couldn't deal with it anymore and I started a system recovery. Everything seemed to go off without any issues until it decided to start up again and now I get the error:

Windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer, restart the installation".

I've restarted several times and even tried to start it in safe mode. Nothing is working. I can't get it to start up no matter what I do. I do NOT have any disks for it (if you needed to know that). It is a MiniNetbook.

Can anyone help me with what I need to do from here please? Any help much appreciated. BTW, my technical skills are low so please, take it easy on me. Specs are: HDD--160GB, RAM:1GB PROCESSOR:1.66

See the first answer on this Microsoft forum which sounds like the same issue as your own: How to restore Window 7 on an Emachine
