AWESOME on the Gateway folder, Recovery Management!!

We may be getting there, scroll down to: Create recovery disks for Gateway with Gateway Recovery Center

On working PC, try to: Create Factory Default Disk DVD with the instructions!

Yes,

I'm not sure if it will be more than one DVD, you may be able to create a USB flash drive or an ISO file.
Notice it says: DISK not DISKS.

See red text below

DVD capacity 4.6 GB, CD capacity 750 MB
:

DVD will hold 6.13333 times more data than a CD

If you use a DVD it will most likely be one or two DVDs at most. Win7x64 install disk I have is one DVD, 3.1 GB

  5. Select Create factory default disc Gateway Recovery Management in Windows 7
  6. At the Create Backup Disc screen, insert your first blank CD or DVD and make sure the optical drive is selected at the “Burn to” item. The software will let you know how many CDs and DVDs you need, if you plan to use either a CD or a DVD
  7. Click Start
  8. The software will prompt you to insert the next blank CD or DVD to continue the process
  9. Insert a new blank media and click OK Disk created. Continue with the next blank disk.
  10. When the process is complete, click OK to exit the software program

Uh....
Insert disk 1 in non-working pc turn off, turn on and press the appropriate F key to enter boot menu, choose CD/DVD, follow screen prompts and cross fingers.

Do you have a sticker on your PC with OEM Product Key, pretty sure you'll need that, on my HP Desktop its left side bottom rear.

View Capacity & Free Space of CD/DVD/BR, start ImgBurn, at top of window left-click mode, click read

this is what is there but I do not know how many digits it is supposed to have.
I got one longer row on top then a lower row on the bottom.
The top row =: 25 digits
Bottom row =: 8 digits
there are numbers and letters in each row

What the H am I looking at? Just one big long product key or what?

Brink says 25 total and in 5 groups of 5

See: Product Key Number for Windows 7 - Find and See - Windows 7 Help Forums
