  1. IO dont beleive that model had a recovery disk, it used the hidden partition method like HP's do. Gateway calls it eRecovery.

    You can download gateways hardware detection utility here:

    but it should be an intel 965 chipset driver as shown in the drivers section.
  2. The HD is new so no restore partition and the SATA drive is not included in any version of Windows, been there tried that . The SATA controller is a SI3531.
    I had an old XP cd and was able to slipstream that driverand get it to recognize and partially install XP until it had probems reading the CD
