Default Computer Issue

My computer will not boot. let me explain how this all happened (Currently using my old computer)

I have a laptop (Acer) with Win7 Pre-installed, meaning there is no disc what so ever.
I installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview to try it out, It made my laptop run slow and my games crash and I just didn't like it. Then I realized you can NOT un-install it. So I ran a system restore and retain user data, after 2 Hours of this it was on 99% 4 hours later it was still on 99%, for one reason or another it froze. I then shut down my computer and tried to start it up. Did not work.

It says:

Starting Windows (w. the symbol)
then
setup is starting services
then a Box pop's up saying:
Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation."
I click it then the same process repeats over and over.

I have tried:
Pressing F8 to use the "Repair computer option"
But for some reason That doesn't show up at all.

Anyone have any clue on what to do? I refuse to get a new laptop (since i have a warranty on this one) and lose all my data or even wait that long.

Oh wow. I'm glad I didn't download that, 'cause I wanted to test it out too. I'm gonna see if I can find something since no one seem to have replied yet..

You'll probably need the recovery disk which i'm assuming you didn't make when you first bought the computer

Default Re: Computer Issue

^what donkios said.

you probably corrupted alot of installation files when u restarted it during reboot.

if you don't care about files and just want windows 7 back, find someone with a recovery disk or the ability to make one for you.

Lol was too lazy and thought I would never need/use it (Now look at me lol)

Plus what sucks about this laptop is that everything came pre-installed, so There was no recovery disc or windows OS disc to re-install. Thanks for the help everyone.

I called Acer & My Warranty doesnt cover this since I installed a new Os which is bullcrap. & Now I have to buy an eRecovery disc off there site for 21.20$ @_@
If that doesnt work, Ima see what does cover my warranty and break it and then get a new one.

Default Re: Computer Issue

lux, whats the exact laptop model. ? most laptops come with a hidden recovery partition, if you had installed the windows 8 on top of the current OS then the partition should still be there.

have you tried to boot up in safe mode ?

try to get ur hands on a Hirens boot cd (u might need to borrow an external cd drive) to help fix the boot up files.

If you don't know what you're doing, call a computer tech because I promise you you'll regret trying to fix it yourself when it won't work at all. Trust me.

the exact reason i learnt how to build pcs, troubleshoot, fix them, i can proudly say there hasnt been a pc i couldnt fix for any of my family or friends.

Unless LUX has the money to blow on a techie coming out then google is his friend, anything can be sourced online if you know how *wink*

i for one wouldnt pay for something if i can get it free

^ that what SSJ said is the problem people want so many stuff free but on the other hand I do agree with you thought ryulord

anyway Lux man just to make sure I got this right it a start up problem right?

anyway since this is your laptop that means the program you download got into you system32 files yeah it sucks your laptop don't let you bypass intro by pressing crtl+alt+delete

can if you can get into your laptop all you would have to do from there is click on computer-right click lock disk c-cllick properties-go to tools tab-click error checking-put a check on scan and attempt recovery for bad sectors.
