Installation Hardware Trouble

I just Reset my Gateway LT2802u to factory settings and it restart
---------
**The Problem**
When the "Setup is Starting Services" an error pops up saying ,

Windows Could Not Complete the installation. To instal Windows on this computer restart the installation.

Now after I press ok the system restarts and just continues to do the same attempt but will give me the same message.
Any knowledge on this issue? Answer at link below

Obviously, the factory recovery has not succeeded.
  1. What operating system was installed when you first bought the computer?
  2. What operating system are you trying to restore?
  3. Did you burn a set of recovery discs?
  4. If so, did you try and use these recovery discs?
The reason I'm asking these questions is that you've already posted a couple of threads asking about product keys and activation methods in particular.


Ultimately, your best bet may be a clean install of Windows using your COA product key to activate the system afterwards.

This tutorial explains what to do.

I had windows start-up when I first bought then Windows Anytime Upgraded it to Windows Ultimate. And I have a netbook so I am assuming there are not any discs involved

Well, in the absence of a factory restore to Windows 7 Starter, you won't be able to run the Windows Anytime Upgrade again until you've either carried out a factory restore or a clean install of Windows 7.

Check this tutorial: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

You've also created two threads on the same subject.

You need to get the two threads merged by one of the mods 'cause it's getting confusing trying to keep up with what's going on.
