I am replacing the drive in a ACER ASpire 5732Z, all went well until the final boot into system setup and now I get an error just after "starting services", "Windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer, restart the installation." (MsgBox)

I am on the 2nd attempt of a complete install, same prompt. Restarting does nothing.
several postings suggest "Crtl, Alt, Del" and kill "audt...", but I nothing happens on "Ctrl, Alt, Del" or "Ctrl, Alt, Esc".

FYI, I can put the original HD back in a boot, but I know its failing as does not have long to live.

Any help is appreciated.
