I tried restoring my acer aspire one to factory settings and now when I turn it on I get a screen saying "setup is starting services," then a popup comes up and says "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation." After I get that I click ok, and it restarts but the same thing keeps happening no matter what I do. Can someone help me with this please.

Hi was experiencing exactly the same with my Acer Aspire 5336, I have no disk with this laptop as it was
pre-installed, but having come across this info on this forum I must say how impressed I was when everything was restored, with all my files being baked up on the c/: drive.
press alt+f10 on start up screen then decide which option u require hope this helps

This worked for me (so far anyway)
If this doesn't work try next step:
SHIFT-F10 to bring up command prompt.
type: CD C:\windows\system32\oobe
type msoobe
enter
Make a generic account and password. hit finish (if it requests a product key and you have one, enter it now. if OEM/No key required, just finish). Set time/date. Finish.
Restart.
Should be good to go.
