I have a gateway mx6625 that I to do a full system restore on but I am unable to get the recovery partition to run correctly. My first problem was I was not able to boot from the recovery partition. I was not prompted to press r, F10 or F11 for recovery as I would expect. So I searched this site and found this:
I did as suggested, making the D: recovery partition active, and was able to boot to windows setup BUT once it attempted to run setup it gave me this error:
Setup cannot find the temporary installation files.
The hard drive on which setup placed temporary files is not currently avalable to windows XP. You may need a manufacturer-supplied device driver, or you may need to run setup again ...
So what am I missing? I know that there are files on the d: drive including the i386 and other windows install files but I not sure where I'm going wrong.
