Hi all,
After looking around google for the past hour, i am goign nuts. I have an old Gateway from a few years back and decided to finally upgrade it from Vista to 7.
The problem is, after I installed Windows 7, the computer keeps booting up into the Gateway system restore screen.
I did do the command prompt thing with Bootrec and in gave me no luck.
Can anyone help me out?

i attempted a clean install. I formatted the drive but left the recovery partition.
So basically, it looks something like:
Partition 0: Recovery
Partition 1: -blank-

Should i delete the recovery partition.
