This is not the place for a question like this. An open forum would be better for this. Your best bet however is to contact gateway and ask them to send you a new recovery cd (this should be pretty cheap. You might not even have to pay for the CD, just shipping.)

Gateway GT5404 Recovery Disk


The recovery disk is model specific and basically garbage. You'd be better off getting an install disc for Windows or another operating system. Many flavors of Linux are available and FREE.

How do I enable the drives on my Gateway 505GR?


Enter BIOS SETUP.
Change the "boot order" to put the CD/DVD drive as the _first_ boot-device.
Save/Exit, insert the CD-ROM containing the Operating System, and your computer should boot from the files on the CD-ROM.

Gateway laptop reset


Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

Vga driver


If you know what the name of the generic vga driver that's missing, you can start the computer in MS-DOS mode (if I recall correctly, you can do that in win98), then edit the boot.ini and add it in. If not, you're out of luck and need the Windows 98 CD. Since you already own a license of Windows 98, it should be legal for you to download a copy (but I'm not a legal expert and this is not legal advice).
