i made it to work by loading rubygems first.

U:>irb
irb(main):001:0> require ‘watir’
LoadError: no such file to load – watir

from (irb):1

However, i never had to load rubygems before. the script i am running
was working before i reimaged my machine and reloaded ruby. what did i
miss in my install that i have to require ‘rubygems’ now.

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘watir’

There is an environment variable that automatically loads rubygems.

Perhaps your old system had the following environment variable:
RUBYOPT=rubygems setup.

last time, i used 1 click intaller. not this time. so i probably have
to setup the environment variable. How does it look like.
RUBYOPTS=

RubyInstaller no longer adds RUBYOPT

See above, I showed you what RUBYOPT should be set to.
