Yes, any retail installer with all versions unlocked should manuaully activate factory OEM if the correct version is installed.

The exception would be if Gateway has blocked this somehow which I have yet to see however hear is possible. If you left the Recovery partition you can try running it, or Gateway may make you order the disks. They are supposed to provide you with a method to clean reinstall if requested.

I would try the Home Premium MSDN download as suggested.
