System reserve partition

In the tutorials creating a system reserved partition and a partition to install Windows 7 seems to be a bit of a gray area. Are these partitions really needed?

I think I can bite the bullet for the mobo and delay the processor replacement, as long as the old one will work with the new mobo.

I already have the OEM version and have had it for beyond any time period in which I could return or exchange it. I suppose I could get an upgrade version for the XP machine and go on from there.
