***HELP!*** Installation hang!

HP Recommended
TouchSmart2 (tm2-1070us)
Windows 7

I was wiping and installing a student version of Windows 7 over a secure wireless network (DVD-drive shared, Touchsmart connecting via network sharing, etc.).  During installation, I lost power to the TouchSmart, and now, no matter what I do, it gets stuck in installation (Setup is starting services, RED X dialog box stating "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error.  Windows installation cannot proceed.  To install Windows, click OK to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.").  This is repeated on what I assume to be an infinite loop.  It never works.

 

This is my daughter's school computer, so I need help FAST!!!

 

Thanks in advance, whoever you are!

 

Greg
