Rescue and Recovery CD's

Myself and another friend have been working on this R61i for about two weeks now.  


History is it needed a larger HD.  Old hd was cloned onto the the new HD.  I am not sure what program was used.  Worked pretty well but was so infected we decided to just start from scratch.  Ordered the CD's from lenvo and started trying to load them tonight.  Loading Vista home and it reads all 3 cd's.  Reboots, the little loading window symbol starts and then it works a little bit more and then it ways "windows cannot configure this computer to run windows".  I don't have a clue.


Any ideas?
