Well, go ahead. But don't complain if your system will not boot any more. Do you know how little space 100MB is.

WHS is right, 100MB really isn't much to worry about, but have a look at this if you want to go ahead with it.

Jonathan, I would move the bootmgr to C as the first step. Then you don't have to make the 3 repair passes. But reclaiming the 100MB is another story - only possible with Partition Wizard (or gymnastics with an image).
