Did you try holding down Alt key at boot then repeatedly tapping F10?

If you know for sure the Recovery partition was deleted then your choice are to order Recovery Disks from Gateway, or go for a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 without the preinstalled factory bloatware and utilities. All of the steps are in the blue link.

Does your computer have an activation key somewhere on the outside of the case ?

I don't have a recovery partition.
And in any chance, do you know where I could order the Recovery Disks from Gateway?

Would you like to try a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to compare and decide if you still want to order the factory bloatware?

All the steps are in the blue link above.

Well then, if you wanted to you could follow Gregs advice to download the iso file ( your version ) then burn it to dvd using Imgburn at 4x speed. Install windows and activate it with your key.

I'm going to try that in a little bit. But I previously tried with PowerIso and WinToFlash. and failed. Hopefully this will work.
