Right click on the my computer icon of the desktop , and select "manage" ... it will open the "computer management" window . Choose "disk management" in the left side pane of the window.

Select your System reserved partition in the right side of the window .... and right click on it ... "Change drive letters and path" . In the resulting dialog, select "Remove", and then "OK" .
