please be more specific. What is your computer model?

in general if you are running windows 7 or vista that came on it there should be an option to burm recovery disks. If you just need to do a recovery you should be able to do it from the recovery partition if it has one by pressing a button when you boot up.

If it did not come with disks or a partition, you can't create them, or you lost them you will have to contact gateway to get recovery disks for your model.

Hello mitcheal;

The 'free gateway recovery disk' would be the one you made from your computer when you first got it. That's what the Gateway manual recommended.
There is a hidden partition on the hard disk where that is located.
Do you still have the original hard disk?

The 'free gateway recovery disk' would be the one you - should have - made from your computer when you first got it.

Something that almost all new computer owners never do and get desperate when the Windows or hard drive fails.

Those comments are not at all helpful to the user. Most also have an option to make the recovery disks at any time that the o/s works with an included software program that is in the Start/programs menu.

I agree with danny2000 and would add it is bad business practice to throw the recovery on a partition and NOT provide actual backup dvds with the purchase. Shame on Gateway!
