Won’t Install

So I recently reset my computer and while windows was install my power went out and now it keeps saying

the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed.  To install windows click, “OK” to restart the computer, and restart the installation.

I have clicked okay 5 times and it still keeps popping up, is there anyway to fix this? I have the CD disk and the windows code.  Also is it possible to change the installation device to my SSD instead of a HDD?

You should be able to just disconnect the HDD while its off and reboot, so that you can select the SSD without any other drive showing (although the DVD/USB may show of course). Most likely its not installing anymore because of the fact that its trying to boot the HDD and not the install DVD.

Make sure you're actually booting to the DVD using your motherboard boot menu on startup. Usually the disc drive is set to a lower priority than your local drives.
