I have a 507gr gateway. I created a recovery set and then lost them. I tried to create a new set but get the message that one set was already created. It will not allow me to create a new set. Is there any flag i can change in the registry to allow it to create a new set?

By recovery set did you mean the recovery volume on your hard disk or the restoration point you create with Windows Backup and Restore? If it is the later one, you can try to change some settings or install something which will make the system ready for another restoration point if it is not. If it is the first one, then you might need to contact the manufacturer so they can use their tools to create one for you.

Gateway NV5105u Laptop. I have the Windows 7 disk. There is no recovery partition or drivers, I receive error & I've tried Diskpart to create a partition and I get a message no disk partition found.


My advice in this isn't expert.

I seem to remember when I loaded Windows 7 I was given the option to create a recovery partition. I didn't take that option and suspect whoever loaded your operating system also didn't.

I think your best option is to format the drive and reload everything. Formatting is best done by removing the drive and formatting with a separate computer.

    Need a new hard drive but have no windows vista disk


    You don't.
    Do you have backup software? If so, do a "disk and partition" backup. This essentially creates an image of your system, even if you have multiple hard disks. Decent backup software (I won't mention any brands except the one I use: Acronis) will allow for a boot time recovery of your entire system, either by inserting a post-bios command -- which will appear on your screen before windows startup with a message like "Press F12 for system recovery", or you should press whatever key your system allows for boot order and boot from the recovery disk you can create from the software.
    You can even now immediately create a Windows backup to an appropriately sized USB mounted disk (even the terabyte ones are relatively cheap) and a Windows Recovery Disk...the recovery disk should be inserted and use boot order F-key...good luck

    Recivery disk


    The recovery disk is nothing more than an Windows install disk with all the drivers already in. If you don't have it then install Windows using any other Windows disk and your key and download, save and install the drivers manually after that.

    Issue with opticaldrive and creating factory default disc


    most of the time to create recovery disks you have to use about 7 cds, 2 DVDs, 1 blueray or double layer. some systems also use DVD+R, when you start the disk creation it would tell you what it requires, your best option (if compatible) would be using 2 DVDs-R. On the other hand if you inserted the cd and it turned a few revs. most likely it is ruined already so you have to use a new disk.
    if it is a brand new pc you should be able to use DVD. here is a tutorial for HP and it is pretty similar for most computers

    Q: What if my Gateway System Recovery CD/DVD is lost, missing or damaged? A:
    • For computers shipped after November 1, 2004 and until January 2005, a patch needs to be installed. Download the patch through our FTP site at ftp://esupport:vImvF88@ftp.gateway.com/pub/hardware_support/drivers/apps/medialess/Create_DRV_APPS_CD_Update.exe.
