Hello,

My hard drive crashed, but I managed to open it and mechanically get it going again. I saved most of my data and bought a new hard drive. I inserted the recovery disks (1 of 2 and then 2 of 2) which chugged along fine until it got 83% complete then I got a screen asking to insert disk 3 (???) I inserted the Gateway System Disk, that wasn't what it wanted. Wonder what I am supposed to do now?

I solved this one myself, Evidently one has to start with the Systems Disk, then Recovery 1, then Recovery 2, then systems again, and finally the language disk.

They didn't make it easy.
