Windows 7 not installing properly from OEM recovery disks
I have a 2 year old Gateway laptop (NV5929u) i5 430M w/ 4GB. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed.
The computer crashed with a blue screen a few months ago, and I could not locate the recovery disks, so I ordered a set from Gateway (1 System disk, 2 Recovery disks, 1 Language disk). My attempts at recovery were unsuccessful and I got the msg: failure disk 0 partition 3. I replaced the HD with a brand new one yesterday. My attempts at recovery went a bit further, to the point that the computer loads the information on the various disks, but when it tries to restart, the screen says:
Setup is applying system settings
and shortly after that a window pops up with the msg:
Windows setup could not configure Windows to run on this computers hardware.
Do I have faulty recovery disks? Do I need to do something with the new HD prior to booting from the System/Recovery disks?

Does it still have the Recovery partition, which is the most stable way to run Recovery? Gateway Support - Full Factory Recovery
If not I'd start over using the latest official Win7 installer to get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
If that fails or you want to try Recovery disks again then wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command accessing DISKPART At PC Startup
