I keep getting the message bootmgr file missing when I try to log on to my gateway laptop. I lost my restore cd and need a copy to try and reinstall windows vista.

First, check your BIOS and ensure that the primary hard drive is number 2 on the boot list (the CD-DVD drive should be #1). If that doesn't do the trick, there should be a recovery partition on it that you can access by hitting f8 as soon as you turn the computer on. If that doesn't do it, just google "access gateway recovery partition."
