My all in one gateway s/n PWG8502001937013BA6900 has a messenge HMDUV is compressed, and I can't restore my computer

This is similar to your situation and might help you get past it. I can't find anything on HMDUV, even at Gateway and I've never heard of it. Apparently at some point you have compressed files on your system OR, you have corruption or an infection. I'm assuming the former. You should never compress OS files. This is usually done because of low disk space.
This will tell you how you can get to the drive and uncompress files, however, if you want to wipe out your system and reinstall, then that would take a lot less effort.

I have a old gateway pc and I would like to install a Hard Drive from a Dell pc into it. Can it be done?

Swapping the hard drive from the Dell into the Gateway will not work because the Dell hard drive has been installed with Dell specific drivers and configurations.
When you install the Dell hard drive into the Gateway you need to wipe the hard drive and install a fresh copy Windows XP onto this hard drive and the Gateway device drivers etc.

Did you install from the Gateway-modified version of the Microsoft Windows CD-ROM, or from a "generic" Microsoft Windows XP disk?

If the latter, then your computer is missing the "device-drivers" for some of the Gateway hardware, namely the wireless adapter, and the M.S.C.

So, access Gateway's web-site, enter your model-name and model-number, and look for "downloads" for Windows (XP? Vista?) for your computer.
Download and install the selected device-drivers, to add support for those devices.
