Question about Gateway 920 Series (gtwy920) Server

1 Answer

We have numerous Gateway servers. The server business was sold to MPC and now they've gone under. Where do we go for support? Some of our servers are still under warranty - is that now useless?

Support, you're out of luck I'm afraid. Find a local computer company that can do server work on the scale you need would be my best suggestion. The warranty is a little trickier. It depends on exactly what warranty you got. If I understand correctly and you bought the servers from Gateway before they sold, then Gateway still holds warranty obligations on them IF you have certain warranties then they must replace with equivalent or better - but seeing as they got out of servers, they will probably just give you a desktop that is comparable in specs, even though it's not at all the same thing. A description of the Gateway warranties is here. I kind of doubt that you'll get any traction unless you bring up the legal obligations they have under the specific document that covers your case. Even then, they might refuse and you'd have to get lawyers involved, but at this point it's probably not worth it.

So it took me that long to say: Probably Gateway won't do anything for you. Possibly you can get spares from online retailers or auction sites to replace your aging hardware, but this technique can only last so long.

Hi, i have a MPC Netframe 3610 server with windows 2000 server installed. now i want to install windows xp but i get the folllowing error: no disk found after boot from cd. why?


You will need to use the F2 option during the initial loading process to load RAID drivers for whatever RAID controller your hard drives are connected to. You caould probably get around it by installing an internal IDE hard drive and loading the OS to that too

What to do for support now that MPC went out of business


As owners of multiple MPC and Gateway systems, we are currently mirroring the entire MPC support site and will have ALL files necessary for updating any MPC and MPC/Gateway systems. All owners manuals, device drivers, setup files, etc. will be available in the very near future. This is an ongoing procedure and is taking up over 100 gigabytes of storage space and a great deal of strain on our servers.
All files from the former MPC support site will be on our server as of 3/26/09.
We are still unsure of which of our websites will be hosting the downloads but will email all those interested when the site is up and running.
Obviously, this is an enormous undertaking to construct a site of this magnitude so please allow us time to get it up and running.
For the time being, we can process a limited number of requests for drivers, manuals, etc through our email system. You can contact us with a serial number and we will email back with all of the files we have available for your particular pc.
Contact available through the following email address. xodusss@cox.net

Switching server to a pc?


A different operating system (Like XP)

However, depending on the server, it may not make the best multimedia device.

It really depends on the hardware configuration, and what you plan on using it as, but for the most part, you shouldn't have any problems.
