have gateway laptop that will not boot. Get the no bootable disk hit any key error. Have restarted in BIO] (f2) and does not see hd at all, no label. I have tried to bring up in safe mode but f11 and f8 do not work. The HD is 500 gb. I have another 500 GB hd but am having issues getting a boot from a system image from another laptop.

My best guess is that you have a broken hard disk. Generally Windows is customized to the hardware during the install on the PC and might not boot when used on a PC will different hardware.

I suggest you download a copy of Linux so you can try to boot from the Linux CD. That will give you proof that the Motherboard/CPU is working OK.

Good Luck
