Sorry for the delay, but got a call from work I had to take...
Now getting back to your problem...
If you got to that point, that means that it deleted the windows files and copied the new ones back in, but didn't set them up properly which isn't a good thing. What I want you to do is restart Windows Setup again but loading the cd (aka pressing a key when the press any key to boot from cd...
screen appears). On the first screen that appears, hit R
to enter the Recovery Console. Then you will have to hit 1
to log into your windows installation and then just hit Enter
for the Administrator password because it is normally blank unless you changed it. Once you are at the command prompt C:\WINDOWS I want you to type chkdsk /p /r
. This will do a scan of your hard drive and repair/replace any errors it finds. After it is done, type EXIT
and your computer will reboot. When it restarts retry to do a REPAIR INSTALLATION of windows and let me know how far you get this time.BEFORE DOING THIS, IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO BACK UP ANY FILES (PICTURES, MP3s, DOCUMENTS, ETC...) THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAVE IN CASE ANYTHING GOES WRONG
I don't expect anything to go wrong, but it's always better to be safe then sorry.
