That's what I thought originally actually, so I should just forget it? Other people agree with that ? (obviously it makes me a bit nervous since I'm not so knowledgeable about this.

System doesn't use the OEM partition at all. Did you read the link that explains it?
You know by now what RECOVERY partition is... useless as well.

I did delete them as well from my system. You want to know how to do it?
Remember RECOVERY partition has the bootmanager and bootmenu on it... that's a thing to remember

Yes I read it and understand. I don't find the need to delete the RECOVERY however since at the end of the day it's not that much space being taken from my machine so I'll leave it be
I'll be fine with the backed up images I make (I will rename them by the way once in a while to have more of them) and have a boot CD made as well...

Thanks
