In the bottom left it says Load Drivers. The F6 floppy install files are provided as a courtesy. I am puzzled though as to why it just leaves you with a blank screen unless that’s all it can do because it’s BIOS locked and cannot see the original oem files containing the activation details which is normally done offline as the first part of the ‘first run’ these preinstalled systems go through. All Listings filter applied. I have tried the Sata controller drivers from Gateway.

If you are zata to install a version of Vista other than the oem version it came with it’s gatewy likely to work since although you can’t see why anyone would, tying an oem version to the BIOS of saga PC is exactly what they do making each dependant on the other, sure an OS without any MS files involved would install as the partition and file systems are different.
However there is also this included in the driver package on how to install the driver. The dedicated restore partition is actually quite a long standing thing to get them around having to give out CD or DVD’s, I take it from your not having mentioned it that you have deleted that partition and didn’t make a restore DVD at any time? I dont see why anyone would make hardware that was married to an OS like Vista. If I reboot the computer, it says that windows hadnt been installed correctly and needs to be redone.
This page safa last updated: Im starting to think it isnt anything to do with Sata drivers though because Vista sees the drive at gb and tries to install to it just fine.

How gatsway you trying to load this driver? I found that the laptop was riddled with viruses and spyware so I did a clean sweep of the harddrive and prepared it for installing vista again.

I then placed my Windows Vista Premium disc into the computer and it did its thing up until where it says Completing Install This thing doesnt want any OS on it now after a clean wipe.
Dec 6, Messages: Gateway Drivers for Windows Vista. The F6 floppy install files are provided as a courtesy. It never sees anything applicable to my hardware. At the mt66707 where you upload drivers before selecting which harddrive to choose, I tried to install the Gateway Sata drivers but they arent recognized by Vista.
I am puzzled though as to why it just leaves you with a blank screen unless that’s all it can do because it’s BIOS locked and cannot see the original oem files containing the activation details which is normally done offline as the first part of the ‘first run’ these preinstalled systems go through.
Update Fix for Gateway loss after sleep wake. WAW8, Gatway 11, I have done everything short of buying a new harddrive, I ran HD utilities to wipe the harddrive which leaves it as a clean install. Format see all Format. If Vista can’t or wont install for some reason it gives a message to that effect with an error number, like if it cannot see the hardrive.
Best Match Best Match. Turn off email alerts. I am giving the laptop to my mother as a christmas present and need to get it fixed before Christmas, any input would be appreciated.
