Yes. I don't know what it is for Gateways, but I'm sure someone will come up with the answer. In the meantime, you will need to change your boot order in BIOS. When you first boot up you should see a message saying "press DEL" or "press F2" or similar to enter BIOS. When you find it, make the CD-ROM the first device. Save your settings and reboot.I have a gateway im trying to upgrade to xp but it wont run the setup. i'v tried putting the cd in by itself and with a bootdisk but nothing. is there a button to run from the cdrom on gateways like f12 does for dells?
