Hello dew1.





It is where the boot files are created for Windows 7 when it is installed to an unallocated Hard Disk Drive (HDD), one that has never been formatted before; it is not necessary but it does several other very useful functions, one being it adds a link to the "Windows Recovery Console" in the F8 or the "Advanced Boot Options" menu at system startup, like in the snip below.

That 100mb drive is reserved for the OS to work properly. It is used primarily to store boot information. Do not do anything that would result in not having that partition.
Hope this helps
