Just Downloaded & install 2013 R2 but won't go past selecting premier Contractor edition

As stated above as soon as I select contractor, hit next, then finish, it then says error occurred while attempting to reconfigure.  You must temporarily return to previous edition until new edition cd arrives in mail.

Is there anyway around it. I just got a new computer and my last backup was R2. I installed my original CD then found out it wasn't R2. So I then downloaded and installed the R2 but still can't get anywhere with it.

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi Linda,
While I haven't seen that error before, I've found this Knowledgebase article in relation to that message which I'll link below. I'd suggest trying the first solution of installing in Selective Startup mode after enabling all admin privileges. Failing that, the next step outlined requires access to your Windows Registry, this is highly technical and extremely fragile and we recommend an IT professional for this.
