    I REFORMATTED MY ACER LAPTOP AND IT GIVES ME A ERROR MESSAGE "NTLDR IS MISSING, PRESS RESTART". WHEN I REFORMATT IT AGAIN USING THE ALT-F10 FEATURE, IT WENT THROUGHT THE FORMATTING BUT IT GIVES ME A ERROR MESSAGE SAYING " MISSING A FILE OR FILE IS OPEN". THE FILE IT GAVE ME WAS "C:\PRELOAD.TAG" SO, WHAT I NEED TO DO TO GET MY LAPTOP WORKING AGAIN. ALSO, I RIED THE RECOVERY DISKS AND MY BACKUP RECOVERY DISK AND ITS GIVING ME THE SAME MESSAGE. i APPRECIATE IT IF SOMEONE CAN HELP ME .:(:(

    If you reformated your drive then it will become unbootable.
