Click the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\System file, and then click Open.
Type a name for the key, and then click OK.
Double-click the name you chose in the previous step.
Double-click the Setup key.
Double-click the SystemSetupInProgress value in the right pane.

Click the key name you chose in step 5, and then click Unload Hive on the Registry menu.
Quit Registry Editor and then restart the computer.
