Windows 7: Moved to an SSD, need some help linking libraries...

Hello mate.

Since the whole system is still very new and the partition is very helpful in other ways, see the info below I've written for a tutorial I'm working on; you may care to add the SysResv using diskpart, do the clean all as usual then do the creates using the out-line in the Step Two #3 snip I added to this tutorial.

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

information   Information
  • It adds a link to the WinRe (Windows Recovery Environment) that is seen when the advanced boot options are accessed through the use of the F8 hot-key during system startup that can be used to recover from startup errors if a Windows installation / recovery disk is not available for use.
  • The partition is an asset for the use of Windows Backup and Restore to function correctly, we're now seeing issues if not enough space is available for WB & R to use and creating a larger (than the default 100MB) SysResv partition may solve these issues.
  • It is used by Windows 7 BitLocker to store encryption information and will be created by the BitLocker program if it does not exist.
  • It creates a single location for the Windows BCD store that the system boot files are kept in, in a dual / multi boot situation and makes removing one of the installed Windows Operating Systems (OS) (in a dual boot) very easy to accomplish if the need arises.
