Trying to use the recovery software to rebuild the hard drive back to original. I keep getting error messages that asks me to restart the computer (over and over). One message states that it cannot find the recovery partition. How can I stop the process or get it to work?

Most likely the recovery partition is corrupt, or your hard drive has gone bad. the fix for both start with thing. contact the manufacture and getting a copy of the original install CD's. you may be able to find the else where on the net for sale. once you have the CD's use them to reinstall the OS. if you still have the same problem after you have the CD's get your hard drive tested, or replace your hard drive. (a hard drive cost about the same as a diagnostics at most places).

What can i do to get to the recovery screen on my gateway desktop, its model is SX2110G-UW24?


I pulled this from the Gateway manual for your machine. It is a generic guide. If this doesn't work, you may not have a recovery partition on your hard drive and should have made recovery disks when originally getting the unit. Good Luck!

From the Gateway Manual......

Recovering from the hard drive during startup:
To reinstall Windows and all pre-installed software and drivers:
1. Turn on your computer, then press Alt+F10 during startup. Gateway
Recovery Management opens.
2. Click on Restore system from factory default.
Caution: Continuing the process will erase all files on your hard
drive.
3. Click on Next. Your hard drive's original, factory-loaded contents are
recovered. This process will take several minutes.

Gateway zx4351 operating system missing


When did you get this Gateway? Where did you get it? I assume you mean that it has no OS, cause Gateway does NOT make an operating System. Need more details, please!

Disk boot failure on compaq presario S7300CL


Hi friend,

The message, "Disk boot failure" often means that the OS is corrupt and needs to be re installed. Try restarting the computer twice or thrice and check whether you can log in to the system. If the same error displays again then you have to re install the OS. But re installing the OS leads to data loss from the hard disk. So at such kind of situations you need a data recovery software to recover your data back. Yodot Hard Drive Recovery is a wonderful data recovery software which performs recovery after disk boot failure.

Or either try.

The time required depends on the size of the hard drive (it checks unused portions of the hard drive) and the amount of software installed.
