One of our new Lenovo's had an issue and I wanted to post the fix here in case it saves someone else some time.
On first boot a pop-up said "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed". I thought I would have to download a fresh image but I found a workaround through Google on Microsoft answers. It worked!

1) On the same error screen press SHIFT+F10 and it will open up a black Window. (a command prompt window)
2) In the black windows type the word "regedit"(without the inverted commas and hit enter. That will open the registry editor.
In the Registry Editor..
HKLocal machine/SYSTEM/SETUP/STATUS/ChildCompletion, and after highliting childcompletion,on the right hand side check for setup.exe. if the value is 1 change it to 3.(by double clicking on setup.exe and changing the value shown in the box).
Then close the registry editor and then also close the black window.
