Windows 7: Deleted System Reserved Partition

07 Feb 2014   #31

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

In that case I misunderstood nothing.

2. " Mounting the primary partition " - I guess you mean that you made the primary C partition active
Not exactly. Different tools use different terminology. The volume had no drive letter after the system reserved partition was deleted. All that needed to be done was mount it (assign it its drive letter) with a boot-time partitioning program that I ran from a USB stick and then Startup Repair could do its thing.

3. " for Startup Recovery to do its thing " - would that be running startup/repair 3 times and rebooting every time
No I only needed to do it once.

My point is that your instructions are vague and no uninitiated person can deal with it. If you want to help, be more specific and describe the steps.
Well people that are serious about fixing their problem ask for clarification. I didn't say what tools I used because they aren't free and the OP would either spend a lot of money just to fix a momentary problem or get a virus looking for cracks. So I wanted to avoid that and let others suggest free alternatives if he asks what tools he should download.
