Hi
I thought that some people would tell me that there already are topics created with the same question.

Why do you want the System Reserved partition, and why are you running Win7 on an external HD which it is not meant to install upon?

Instead of having a LiveCD or Live USB I have that external disk in case of emergency.
That way I can use it to repair, check viruses, and also store data.
And because I'm trying Windows 8 before deciding to definitily install it on the main disk.

Are you doing a clean install on your PC, or making a Windows to Go?


Windows 8 To Go - Setup on a USB Flash Drive or USB Disk

But I have a question:
The way you explain we install Windows to a primary partition.
But we don't get the 100MB boot/recovery partition (that is automatically created when you install windows on a internal blank disk, and it's usually hidden).
How can I get that "recovery" partition created?
I cannot find the option with easeus, diskpart, nor other applications I've tried.
Nor can I get it created whit imagex, bcdboot or after rebooting.

Did you know you are in a Win7 forum? Do you think you should mention your talking about Win8?
