GATEWAY/YUKON PXE V6.60-.1.2 Pre-boot eXe Environment
Used Gateway md7818u laptop (missing install disks). Came with no spin drive (ST9500325AS) so I installed a replacement drive (ST9500325AS) after initializing, formatting, (Set Active partition) writing to it...testing it successfully as an external drive on an XP Pro desktop. Drive worked fine. Now I moved drive to Gateway md7818u laptop and it is not detected:
System starts with:

Operating system not found
new Seagate MOMENTUS 7200.4
Called the (notorious) Gateway Tech Support and after being hung up on three times got a tech who emailed me this file: MT6840_BIOS_7715
But I can't seem to find a way to get it loaded. F6 in Windows 7, or XT or Vista doesn't work. In my third day of installation. Help! The Mother Of All Hard Installs.

I dont think so? Was the drive checked, i know it was new but i have the EXACT same page displayed after swapping a recently (1/20/11) purchased HTS543232L9A302 from my daughters fubared system with mine.We have identical mc7801u Gateways, Her symptoms were slow to no boot, then finally it was just the windows desktop with nothing on it. Cry, Cry, do we gotta put her down daddy?Ok so i took the 30-ought six and the comp to the wood shed...., where i swapped my drive with hers. Blam...seems her machine is a little snappier, runs cooler and more stable than mine, her newer drive in mine reacted the same as in hers, slow to no boot.After KillDisk, I recieved identical page as Namrog above, now aside from getting bad HD's is there something we missed? Baby wants a new system and I could use the parts but, come on there was a time when we fixed what we broke and held others to an elevated standard around here. And who sold out over at Gateway to Acer, allowing them to completely dismantle their competition. Their name please? God Bless America , were gonna need it!
