So your problems is the removal of Ubuntu from the acer desktop and having the windows boot, correct me if I'm wrong here and do this. You also describe reinstalling windows, so mention how and what media you have to do this with.

So from a booted live Ubuntu cd or thumbdrive lets see the bootscript read out; in my signature just click on it and follow the instructions. Come back to the thread and click on the (#) in the reply panel this makes code tags paste all the text in between.
