Acer Aspire 5251-1513 fails to boot Windows after attempted factory restore.

Hello,
I attempted to restore my Acer Aspire laptop to factory defaults using the built in recovery partition. As far as I know there was nothing at all wrong with the computer, I was just prepping it for resell. Now when I try to boot the computer I get to a screen that says "Setup is starting services, but then I receive an error message that states "Windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer, restart the installation." I click okay and the the process just repeats itself. I can still access the BIOS and have tried to boot from a Windows installation disc and from a USB with no luck. Any advice on my situation would be appreciated.
