System Reserved drive shows up after "2nd OS" install (dualboot)
sorry if this thread already exist before but i googled it everywhere and i cant find answers to my problem so this is a final alternative. i already have windows 7 Ulitmate x86 but 1 day i came up with an idea of giving a try on x64 one by dual booting.. so i downloaded it legally from microsoft and i did every procedures required for the install.. shrunk my C drive and installed the OS on the unallocated free space on the drive and it went on perfectly..
but the problem is the System Reserved partition showed up on the x86 OS. every time i open My Computer i can see the system reserved partition..i could accidentally do something wrong with the partition if it remains unhidden so i want to hide it..I was thinking of changing the drive letter but i afraid that's going to give me boot problem..in disk management the System Reserved is labelled Z and marked as active..tried to set my other partition as active that day but the pc cannot boot at all not even the boot manager showed up. however I managed to fix it using my recovery disc to access the cmd and reactivate the Z drive using diskpart. help~

You'd better post up a maximized Disk Mgmt screenshot so we can see if you've returned the System Active flags to System Reserved after repairing, as that is not at all guaranteed.
You'd only need to remove the Drive Letter as stated: Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums
