The Windows install creates and stores system files on a partition 100-200MB to recognize drives larger than 128GB.

Sorry it took so long to get back, i couldnt find my windows 7 disk so i made one. But your idea worked great Kaktussoft. I now have windows vista installed on my computer and i removed the SYSTEM partition.
Thanks for the help posters, i appreciate it.
