Windows 7: System Reserved missing after clean install of Windows 7

System Reserved missing after clean install of Windows 7

I performed a clean installed of Windows 7 Professional 32-bit on my PC. After the installation, I've noticed that the "System Reserved" Partition was missing but Windows is still normally starts. I am kind of insecure, is this safe?

Sorry for the English. I 'am Filipino

Hello Isaiah, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you did a clean install on a selected formatted drive, then you don't get the "System Reserved" partition.

Only when you do a clean install on a selected drive that is shown as unallocated space will the "System Reserved" partition be created.

Step 8 in the tutorial below has more on this if you like.

If you have a retail installation USB/DVD, then you don't really need a "System Reserved" partition though. You could just boot from the installation USB/DVD for any needed System Recovery Options instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
