Since it's a new computer, it has a warranty. Take it to the seller, and demand a new battery. You might even squeeze them to install Windows 7? If they're customer friendly, they'll do it.

Installs may stop at different points and be useable or not. If it was still running from the files in memory, those will probably be gone. If it got to the reboot where it switches to the hard drive, it may restart, but you say it won't start again.. What exactly won't start again, the install or the laptop?

Can you download the files again or recover them and start over?

Get the official Win7 .iso from Digital River, install that and activate it with the 25digit product key which you find on the COA sticker on the bottom of your laptop.
