I have a Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit install. When the computer boots up, it throws an error message :
Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation.
At this point, if I hit OK on the error message, the computer reboots & the cycle repeats. However I am able to switch user (via CTRL+ALT+DEL) & login to the computer. Everything works fine. I think its the default Administrator account that couldn't be initialized properly when I restored the system. This is what's causing the error.
How do I get rid of this error message ? At this point, I cannot afford to do a re-install. Any registry key hack? Is the MBR corrupt?
I've searched a lot of forums, tried enabling/disable Administrator account. I get the error message in Safe Mode too. I don't have a Windows DVD but a separate partition where the factory image is stored.
