Vista reinstallation CD

I have a Gateway laptop that came pre-installed with Vista Home Premium.
I was trying to reformat it, and well, I'm a dummy, and accidentally
used an XP Reinstallation CD, which I don't have a product key for. I
can't seem to get a Vista CD from Microsoft or Gateway. I don't know
what to do at this point. Any suggestions? =\

Re: Vista reinstallation CD

battery compartment.

'This link' (https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=gateway)
