Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question. In this case where part of the boot sector is missing, you will have to do a recovery. If your Acer has Windows 8 on it, and in some cases if it has Windows 7, you can get to the recovery by tapping F8 right after turning on the computer. Tap F8 into you get to the recovery menu where you should be able to do a recovery and get your system back to booting that way. If not, just let me know with any other details you can provide and I'll hope you work it out. Mike
