A System Reserved partition will only be created if there are no partitions existing before the installation.

Since you created C: before installing Windows, it did not create System Reserved but put the boot records on C: instead.

John, is your F partition on Disk1 an OS partition? If not then it should not be marked Active, which is only to point to a partition booting Windows. Partition - Mark as Inactive - Windows 7 Forums

If one wants a System Reserved partition then during booted install use the Drive Options to delete all partitions to create your partitions as desired, shown in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7

Is your C partition the 'active' partition - check that in Disk management. If not, post a picture of Disk Management.

No Greg that is just my back up spinner. I originally thought I was creating that first partition as the one to save stuff (User data) to but it came out like that how I don't know. I was using Partition Wizard at the time so maybe I missed something there.
