ok, so i messed up my acer w500 when i tryed to load android 86x . i must have installed it on the wrong drive through the thumb stick.
now when i try to boot back to windows i get "bootmgr is missing hit ctrl-alt-del to restart". i have also tried to factory restore the comp with the disks that where provided with the acer w500. but when it tries to load the disk and start it says something to the effect of " there is not enough memeory in the tempory folders or files to proceed" , or something to that effect. when i click ok it ejects the cd and tries to boot normally , then goes to the bootmgr is missing text . please if anyone has any ideas i will be greatfull. please , i am not that tech savy when it comes to computers, if any ideas are given then please be step by step. thank you.

Be sure to format the disk during the process.

isnt that the same as useing the disks that came with the acer w500 to reset to factory ? if it is ten it doesnt work , like previously stated , it starts to load the disk then says there isnt enough memory in the temp files then ejects the cd. if your meaning it in another way then what do you mean and how? thank you for replies by the way

ive used it before maybe about 3 days before i decided to mess up the comp with android 86x. but i will try this anyway. thanks
could the problem be that when i copied the android 86x on the comp i put it on the wrong drive to boot like the main drive "c" thats why its not booting and why it dont have enough memory to boot anything? hope you understand that, cause i just had to reread this 3 times so i could understand it. lol

Could very well be, but I have never tried installing Android in any form.

if this doesnt work then is there a way to lean or empty the "c" drive without be able to access windows. like through dos or something?

When you boot from the DVD, Click on Repair, and select Format C before you install.
