what exactly do you mean by a reserved partition?
are you refering to a hidden partition w/o a drive letter or are you refering to a OEM system restore partition?

yes, but first we must give your partition a drive letter and i was going to show you how, but i need to know which partition it is, that way I can tell you how to actualy give a drive letter to partition.
