Answers :

The "disk" is stored on the hard drive. You access it by pressing ALT+F10 a few times when you see the Acer logo during boot up.

If you get the keys pressed right and on time, it will pop up a utility to reinstall or repair windows. If you miss it, just turn the computer off and try again.
