That System Reserved partition contains your boot files. You need to keep it.

Then divide up the rest of your hard drive any way you choose.

If you have a System Reserved partition, LEAVE IT ALONE. DO NOT DELETE IT. You need it to boot your PC.

Only if you use bitlocker!! Boot files can be made on C-partition as well. If you forget... "startup repair" can fix the problem
