    I am having the same problem. I get the exact prompts and none of them work. It also keeps trying to start windows after the 30 seconds is up. It will keep doing this continuously.

It sounds like it hasnt been activated and the time is up.you can re install as a fresh copy and you"re given 30 days to activate your copy.if youve recently updated to newer sp it needs to be activated.you can try removing the battery and power;reconnect and rebooting sometimes if youre persistent ,eventually youll get something to come on.
