I purchased 2nd hand Gateway MS2300 laptop which came with original Windows 7 and hidden restore drive.
For some issues, I decided to restore system using factory settings. I used the option from My Computer properties.
It went well, started windows installation process (asked language, started setup etc. then I went away)

After couple of minutes it restarted system and shows me "system can't find boot record" message.

What to do you next? I restarted many times, tried to boot from disk or another option (which asks for ethernet connection)

Any help?
