Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
You will need a copy of Vista on disk or a copy of xp to load. Unfortunately, newer computers do not come with these disks. Most people do not want to take the time to create a recovery disk when a new computer prompts you to do so.
If there are files on the disk that you cannot afford to lose, a computer repair shop may be able to copy them for you. As an alternative you may want to get a new hard drive for the computer and an external enclosure for your old hard drive to retrieve your files.

The latest versions of Windows, including Vista and 7, use the Windows Boot Manager to read the boot configuration files and data in order to load your Windows Desktop.
If any of these files are corrupted or damaged, you will see a "BOOTMGR is missing" error. Fortunately, you can use a number of Windows tools to repair or replace the BOOTMGR or any related file that may be the cause of the problem.
Insert your Windows installation CD disk in your computer's CD drive and restart the computer.
Press "F8" repeatedly while the computer boots up.
This command enters the "Advance boot options" screen.
Select the "Repair my computer" option and then press "Enter."
The System Recovery Options screen opens.
Select the "Startup Repair" option at the top of the list and click "Next."
The utility will scan your system for the cause of the BOOTMGR problem and repair it.
Hope this helps
