GATEWAY DX4860 RESTORE

I inherited a gateway dx4860 without any disks or software.  it was running Windows 7 home ok, but i started to load Windows server 2003.   everythinhg went ok for a while, i deleted the original partition, then started installing the new operating system.  however, while it starts loading ok, it always ends up with a blue screen with error 0x0000007B.  

since the hard drive was wiped, and there is no restore disk, it won't boot from the hard drive any longer.   and it won't get all the way through the operating system installation.

i'm not sure what the options are ..
