Problem with system reserved partition.

Hello sevenforums,

I accidentaly deleted the system reserved partition(100mb) and now I'm getting the error "Windows cannot be installed to this disk".

It's a clean HDD.

I'm waiting for an answer. Thank you.

What are you trying to do ?

It can`t be a clean hard drive if it had a sys res partition on it.

Don`t know why. Just install to the unallocated space.

You should be able to just click next.

How can I do that?

And I can't install windows to that unallocated space, because i get this error: 'Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.'
