Everytime I turn on my laptop it gets stuck in a loop. It show's the Acer logo and under it says "Setting up a few things %" and once it reaches 100%, a message pops up saying "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation." Is there way just to reset my whole laptop? Please help me, I don't know what to do. Info: Acer Aspire E 15, Windows 8 , E5-511-P0GC

You can download and create installation media here, in case the recovery partition is corrupted and is to blame for your failing to complete the installation. It will also bypass the need to run a bunch of updates in order to allow the windows store to update to 8.1, it will just install 8.1 using your windows 8 key.:

And then install using this method. Follow the directions EXACTLY:

If you don't know your windows product key, you'll need to obtain that using a third party utility to extract it from the computer unless you have a unit with the OS tied to the bios, in which case you won't. Or if you've registered your units copy of Windows 8 using a Microsoft account, you also do not need it.
