I'm going to see if i can get another hard drive for my laptop and another flash drive to use SystemRescue.
I mean the data is not all that important because i can easily get most of it back (some of it i would not wanna lose) but if theres a way for me to get it back i would like to.
I dont even have a Windows 7 disk on me right now so i dont know how i would reinstall windows since linux overwritten it
and booted the laptop. Went to HDD, Boot setup, and ran the first program there. This let me change the active partition. There are 3 partitions on the gateway HDD. The second is the 'vista' partition, the third is the recovery partition, but the first is the boot-up partition that reads the third.
Set the first partition to active, F2 to save, pop the CD and reboot.
You should now be able to do a factory re-install on your gateway laptop without the recovery CD or DVD.
Hope this helps. I've never actually followed up with a solution before, but this one had me so perplexed I didn't want anyone else to go through it.
