    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10

    one could also create recovery media on another windows 8 / 8.1 PC and use command prompt to copy the recovery image file to the recovery USB

    And factory restore that way..

    BIOS Password or Windows Password? Desktop or laptop? Googling Gateway neb171 didn't get me anything as far as what it is exactly. If somebody reinstalled Windows manually at some point, the recovery feature could be broken, or the recovery image gone all together.
