Windows 7: Computer died during Full System Restore, wont start.

Computer died during Full System Restore, wont start.

Hello~
During a full system restore of my computer i didn't realize it was not charging and left it to finish the restore. Shortly coming back later, it had died so i rebooted it. During the reboot, it did its normal process well restoring, " Setup is starting services.", but then during the process when gathering windows data to restore the computer in its final stages, it gives me the message, " Windows could not finish configuring the system. To attempt to resume configuration, restart the computer."
Shortly after starting my computer, going through the same process, it gives me that message again, and then it repeats, and eventually of course, goes into a circle of completing the same issue. Though im pretty tech savvy this is beyond my technical point. I would appreciate any help *I have searched the internet for answers, used yahoo answers, technical support (online), and all those couldn't help* Thanks!

First things first, I would get a Sata/USB drive adapter and try to get your files off that computer's drive. You can also use Ubuntu as a boot disc and get them as well. Might be easier.

Looks like honestly you are looking at reinstalling Windows from scratch matey.
