Windows 7: Win-7 partition issue

It is useful. It boots the operating System.

If you don't want it, then go ahead and Mark C Partition Active and run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times to see if it will start with System flag on C, since sometimes C can't be made to boot itself and you must move the Active flag back. Only when System is on C should SysReserved be deleted.

And the space is too small to bother with resizing C into, which presents it's own (unnecessary) risks.

Going forward, if one doesn't want it then pre-partition the HD before install using a bootable partition manager like Partition Wizard. Again, more wasted time and for what benefit?

Please don't kill me :-)

I'm just a messenger. those are exactly the kind of points I wanted to discuss before moving forward and deleting system preserved partition.

Do I sound the least bit annoyed? I'm not.

I answer questions like this 365 days a year for 5 years without missing a day since Win7 was in beta. I don't take any of this personally, especially System Reserved partition.

Ignatz gives good help and is one of the best here. We just have differing opinions which you can choose from. He says its disposable. I say its not worth the effort, or even the time to give it a second thought.

I thought it would be a relief to know that there's nothing that needs changing .

Misery would be getting stuck in the middle of changing it over. Then we become like trauma surgeons. One of the rescue methods is constructing a new System Reserved partition.

But if you like to experiment, be sure to back up a System Image first. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
