HP Restore Corruption - Windows 8

[ Edited ]

I had a virus on my HP 2700 and performed the restore to factory.  During the process of reinstallation, there was a power glitch and now the installation did not complete.  Now it tells me to restart to do the install.  It keeps doing this in a loop with no resolution.  I am able to get to a command prompt from doing a Ctrl Alt Del and going to task manager but windows will not start.  Is there a way to restart the installation from the command prmopt?  Please help!!  I am using Windows 8
