Windows 7: What's on that 100MB partition? Can I delete it?

As far as deletions and building new BCD store that's only one part of one equation regardless of the methods used.

It's when going to move the existing C primary you could easily end up with plenty of unallocated drive space if any partition table information is lost in the process while trying to reclaim the 101mb or so which includes the small amount of drive space reserved for changing Basic volumes into Dynamic volumes.

This why the recommendation here would be seeing a full system of the drive created prior to any attempt at removal and resizing the remaining C and any other partitions since partition changes are always risky business from the start. If any mishap is seen you can at least restore the image made.

I have removed the 100 mb partition. I am not able to boot. Is there any way to create the bootloader in the c drive without a fresh installation?

Hello hdhiraj, welcome to Seven Forums!


Start by haveing a look at Option Two of this tutorial at the link below; you need to mark the C: partition as Active and do the 3 separate startup repairs to Windows 7 so the "System" boot files will be created to the C: partition, and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Dear Bare Foot Kid,
Thanks a lot for your reply. I have been successfully able to make the c partition active but on reboot it says "BOOTMGR" is missing.
Please let me know is there any workaround.
thanks again

You have to do the 3 separate startup repairs with the separate PC restarts that are outlined in the main-body of the first tutorial I posted, here's an outline of how to do the startup repairs.


You have to boot the Windows DVD to do this at least 3 separate times.
