I read from internet source and understood that it is small bootable drive(which I didn't understood). If its a bootable drive can I have it moved to computer RAM memory instead wasting my hard disk space. Can someone guide me through a process where I can move the bootable drive to RAM memory.
From what you have wrote here I guess youre simple PC user without deeper knowledge..
But i will try to answer some of your concerns.
OEM drive is usually a bootable drive to repair your OEM OS.
it means that with OEM drive you can restore your pc to the state you have bought it.
I would not suggest to remove it.
RAM memory does not keep data after electricity has been lost and is far more expensive than HDD so i dont understand why would you want to move that partition to ram.
More experienced users. sometimes reinstal OEM OS (from DVD media retail etc. but use OEM key) cleaning their drive from all the OEM add ons but that requeres at least some skill because you may need to do some tweaking and driver
