Windows 7: Infinite restart loop

22 Oct 2010   #31

windows 7 ultimate x64

btw,.. I managed to avoid 100mb system partition doing this:

during a install process when I was given the option to chose a partition to install win7, win7 indeed made a 100mb partition for system....

First I was trying to delete the 100mb partition and expand the bigger partition with unlocated space, but win7 made 100mb again after I try to install,...
Than I deleted the second partition, leaving unlocated space, and than expanded 100mb partition to use all the space, and that did the trick,.. I ended up with just one partition on which I installed windows.

strange, but it worked just fine...
maybe it can help someone

The one sure way to not get the 100MB "System, Reserved" partition is to use diskpart to create the installation partition at the beginning of the install setup; have a look at this tutorial at the link below and the snip to see how.
