Windows 7: 100 MB Partition

If you want to get rid of the 100mb partition and use the Windows 7 partition as system , that's easy enough.

To add a winre scancode at bootup:

Create a folder on another partition (e.g. D) called Recovery, create another folder inside called Winre (you now have D:\Recovery\Winre )

Copy the winre.wim and boot.sdi from hidden Recovery folder on windows partition (e.g. C:\Recovery ) , into D:\Recovery\Winre folder. (You now have D:\Recovery\Winre\ containing winre.wim and boot.sdi )

[I usually take the s and h attribs off them - It might not be necessary]

Open an elevated cmd and type:

C:\windows\system32\reagentc.exe /disable

C:\windows\system32\reagentc.exe /setreimage /Path D:\Recovery\WinRe\ /Target C:\windows /Bootkey 4300

C:\windows\system32\reagentc.exe /enable

Restart pc - tap F9 to boot winre.

You can replace the standard winre with your own - just rename your .wim to winre.wim and put it in D:\Recovery\Winre folder instead of the standard one.

You can use a different scancode if you like - I use F9 .

can you explain what's so special about accessing the normal (system) c:\recovery\Winre with a copy. And the role the 100MB system reserved has in accessing it in the first place?

System Reserved : Create for Dual Boot

System Reserved : Create Using Disk Management

I have now finished this second tutorial and it is now very useful.
