Assuming this is an OEM PC (HP, Dell, etc) you need to contact the mfg's
tech support for help with their recover process, it's not a Windows related
issue. If it's not an OEM you need to post back with hardware info, OS your
installing, etc.

AGAIN, what is the make and model of PC? IF it is OEM (HP, Dell, etc) you
need to contact their support department for help with their recovery
process, it is not a Windows issue.

it seems like you bought a system with preinstalled OS and the copy you made
does NOT work on any other Computer other than yours...
Contact the manufacturer of your daughters computer to get a Recovery set

You may have a bigger problem ad it might be that the PC can no longer
see the boot hard drive correctly. Since the install process is
having problems, the hard drive could be dead, dieing or defective.
You may need to replace the hard drive.
