Oke and good luck. But it's so simple to investigate!
  • You have an ACER-recovery partition, a partition with windows and probably one called "system reserved" (size 100MB)
Investage with diskpart which one is the active partition. Set "system reserved" as the active partition and try to boot. If not working post back.

diskpart can tell you all info!!
bcdedit /store c:\boot\bcd
bcdedit /store d:\boot\bcd
tells you the bootmenu options

Are all windows files gone or do you have a windows folder filled with a lot of files. Something is saying to start "windows setup" . it's in your bcd store
