How to format/install SATA 2TB hard drive (BARRACUDA) in Gateway GT5098E, Win XP Media Center Edition 2005?


Windows XP doesn't support SATA. You will need to use a program such as Nlite to integrate sata drivers into a new Windows XP disc. Once you have a disc with sata drivers just boot to the disc and follow the prompts to format the drive.

I receive a no operation system message while booting


Buy a new hard disk drive! Use the 2 golden Gateway, Applications, Drivers, & Operating System disc, also known as Restoration DVD to reinstall your Gateway programs & operating system. After that, reinstall your backups.

How much disk space do you need? Why buy a 320 GB HDD if you only use 4 GB? So, keep the bytes down if you don't need them and that will keep the costs down, too!

The Gateway support discs can be had at: www.Gateway.com/Support .

I have an older Gateway laptop that I rarely took out of house


you'll have to buy a new but tough to find 2.5'' serial-ATA hard drive, this should solve your problems but you'll have to reinstall any operating system and also all of the data on the current hard drive will be lost.

Will cloned Hard drive work with new MoBo and CPU


No, it's not true, but you will need to buy Partition Magic to clone the smaller drive onto the larger one.

The new MoBo and CPU might give you more trouble though. All of the windows drivers for the old MoBo will be confused when they see all new hardware. In the olden (WinNT) days, this rarely worked. Now in the WinXP SP3/Vista days, you'll probably be just fine.

Hard disk upgrade for Gateway mx7118


check Gateway's support for possible help here. Most laptops can be upgraded substantially, RAM or Hard drive.

Gateway's site- I didn't see any BIOS upgrades. http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?ref=step&st=browse&platform=10022&model=10651&os=&type=

Perhaps someone on this site has made such an upgrade and can give you a definitive answer.

Hard drive


Yes, you can upgrade to 120 GB. Here is an installation guide: http://www.bixnet.com/hadringuh2.html Make sure you purchase a laptop hard drive; they are different than desktop hard drives. A 2.5" one will work. Don't buy it from the site with the installation guide, however. You can get them cheaper from Tigerdirect.com.
