Hello kungfupanda,

You could create the "100 MB System Reserved" partition while you are doing a clean install by doing the first item in the note box under step 8 in the tutorial below.

Clean Install Windows 7

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello mate, sorry for the long response time.


Have a look at Step Two #3 of the tutorial linked below for that method.

So if I didn't want to install a second Windows OS and just create the System reserved partition after installation, should I just follow the steps in 'Option One'?

I still don't know how this works. From what I see you're just creating a generic partition with the volume label System Reserved. I don't know how Windows will realize that it must put the System files there. Any help?
