Your best bet is to contact Gateway and buy one. There is supposed to be a way to make one, but I do not have the paperwork for your computer. If you are the original owner you should have directions in your paperwork. If you do not see it in the paperwork you need to contact Gateway. Gateway and other computer people have gotten cheap anp quit sending disk with the computers. They give you an option to make it and they can walk you through their process. I have seen this process fail. I always tell the customer to buy one from the company. If you are the original owner you can complain and try to get one for free but the probably will not care. Good luck. I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya. I did more than try, I told you exactly what had to be done.

Reinstall windows system is very easy to to operate but without having a Bootable Disk or that Windows XP Media Center Edition Disc, i think you have to buy a new one or Genuine Windows XP Media Center Edition. It's in the market.
And also if you friends that are using any Compaq Presario which they have the WINDOWS CD. Borrow it to install in your LAPTOP.
At least XP Media Center Edition they use.
There is another options on how to put operating system on your laptop. To gather any information or to do at least we have any ideas how to get it.
No need for any Serial #. Genuine Windows Media Center Edition have it's own LICENSE or CD KEY.
Hope this might help you my idea. Good luck!

Windows xp media center error occurs when trying to record programs


When that happens you usually need to backup your data, and reinstall the system to fix Windows corrupted files.

Try first doing a system restore to the most recent date before you started having the problem. If system files are damaged this will not help.

The media center is part of the WMC operative system. You can also reinstall media center alone using add remove programs, then Add remove windows components. Often that does not work, and you need to use a Windows MCE setup disk to fix the problem.

Booting


the following id taken from my own XP media centre laptop.

line 1 [boot loader]
line 2 timeout=30
line 3 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
line 4 [operating systems]
line 5 multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Media Center Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


ignore the "line 1,2,3 etc" I added them for clarity the formatting in this answer pane messes up the last line.

also before you get to edit the start up file make sure that the default operating system listed is the sae as line 5 starting from the "

hope this helps.
