Need more info. Perhaps present OS and a few specs for the PC. Perhaps a MB model. This netbook appears to be marginally able to run Win 7, perhaps the Starter Edition. I suspect going with something other than the Starter Edition will not succeed.

Have you run the Win 7 Upgrade Advisor? How about checking out the Win 7 Compatibility Center?

The driver that it is looking for is most likely a MB driver or some such. I would check the Gateway site for chipset drivers, MB drivers, etc. Perhaps download the Win 7 driver to a flash drive and use this to install the driver from. But again, the specs for this PC are somewhat marginal for Win 7.
