I'd first check that you have the hard drives installed correctly as you can have a primary and secondary drive ect. If you need any of the files I'm unsure but If you don't mind those files deleted you could reinstall windows xp. But from a different computer you could get the drivers needed for xp. Install the operating system xp for example and then from another computer dvd drivers such as network(Probably the most important) you can add those and reconnect to the internet and from there download the other drivers directly (IE video drivers). At least check the hard drive connections to see that they are the way you want them. Hope that helps somewhat.

My windows xp home edition has crashed and i have no recovery cd


Find a friend with either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM disk,
or with an 'OEM' ("original equipment manufacturer") equivalent.

Use that disk, plus the 25-character product-key on the label on the side of your computer,
to reinstall Windows, or first to try to "repair" your installed copy of Windows.

Or, if you have a "brand-name" computer (Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, eMachines)
telephone the manufacturer, and order a replacement "System Restore" set of CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

Gateway Laptod Model No M360


First you will need to register at gateway, I took the serial number you provided and gateway has no record of it, once you register it, you should be able to purchase the recovery disks. I'm including the link:
https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=gateway&sn=0000000000 you need to register in order for this link to work, that serial number has to be in gateways system, once it is you can order recovery media. Hope this helps

0xc0070002 prblem occuring during installation and installaton close autmatically how i install it now


Either the system you are using is not supporting Windows XP home edition which is the case possible if you have bought your computer before the year 2002 or The installation disk you are using contains errors. These disk errors may be two types:-
*There may be some physical damage i.e. Some of the disk's optical flux may be destroyed.{You may get another copy of this disk}
*There may be some problem with the files of Windows, A usual problem with pirated disks and may be solved by buying an original copy of Windows Vista as licensed XP is no more available in the market!

Windows XP Home Edition - No Drivers.


vswright is right, you have to make a restore disk when you are happy that that system is running properly (this called system back up and restore) go to the HP support website (HP now own Compaq)
and enter the make and model of the pc and download the device drivers you need, if you experience any problems, get back to us
