Windows 7: New SSD up, but

New SSD up, but

Hi All,
I just added an SSD to my system. I have it up a running fine, but I did notice one thing. I wiped the spinner clean, but it has a 100MB system reserved on D:. I'm just wandering if this normal and/or necessary?

It won't hurt anything and yes it's normal. If you want to get rid of it the tutorial in the link below will show you how.

The 100MB partition on the spinner is probably from an earlier installation on the spinner. Just to make sure that there is not a dependency on that bootmgr, disconnect the spinner and boot from the SSD. If that works, then you can delete it.

There is always the danger that a bootmgr or BCD ends up on another disk - especially in your case where the spinner is on a lower port than the SSD.

If there is a dependency, the bootmgr is easy to move: Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD
