Gateway CX2619 Laptop

We got a hand me down gateway for daughter and we had to reformat the hard-drive. I came to find out was missing the third disk on Gateway's "System Restoration Kit" disks. They no longer provide them anymore, since out of warranty. I was going to just install full version of XP (just had Win ME, when reformatted). It's telling me "No Hard disk error". I tried going into BIOS, hitting F10 on boot up. But there's no Sata settings in my bios. It's a "Phoenix Bios" system.

Any help would be great.
