Ok, well my desktop crashed, its a Gateway GM5632E with Windows Vista. So I borrowed a Recovery Disk from a friend of mine because my computer never came with one. So during the Install Process it hits " Expanding Files " at it reaches 1% then I get an Error Code. Does anyone know why? Or how I can fix it? I formatted both my hard drives, I just really need to get this computer back up and running.

Recovery DVD will work ONLY for the computer, it was made for. You can't use friend's recovery DVD.
You have to either call Gateway and ask them for recovery DVD, or use your recovery partition to reset computer to its original state.
