Attempting to downgrade to XP on Gateway 6834, formatted the drive but xp does not recognize the disk to install OS. Is there a third party driver to install before attempting to install XP.

What OS are you downgrading from? Check out Gateway's support site for your model and see if they have a specific driver for XP (if there is just a Vista one, it may be worth a shot). If not, contact Gateway support and see if the drive in it is supported by XP.
