For starters, try this tutorial on startup repair. Also, can you tell us what other symptoms you are having and what might have caused the problem.

Hello Eilwah, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Running a startup repair may be able to fix this for you. Sometimes it may take running it a few times though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You haven't given us much to work on other than the fact you have an Acer M3201.

It sounds as though there's something wrong with your BIOS settings.

If you can't boot your Acer computer or you wish to restore the BIOS back to its default settings, press and hold the F10 key as you turn on the computer.

While continuing to hold the F10 key, you should hear two beeps indicating that the settings have been restored.

Remove the Windows DVD, restart your computer and all being well it should boot into Windows from your hard drive.

Boot into windows and post a screenshot of Disk Management fully expanded so we can see the top and bottom sections. You can right click computer, select manage, in the left column select disk management.

You may need to mark the Win7 System Reserved (preferred) or OS partition Active and run Startup Repairs up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts on its own.

You have an "Expansion drive" K which is incorrectly marked Active and may be interfering with the boot so unplug it to see if Win7 boots correctly.

If not unplug K, boot into DVD Repair console or Repair CD to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots to repair or rewrite the System Boot files to C.

Then after WIn7 starts on its own follow the tutorial I posted earlier to mark K Inactive from DVD/Repair CD command line.
