As Barefoot says, it is exactly correct. You want the 100mb System Reserved partition to be active because the System Active flags planted there mean that Windows 7 is booting off of that partition as intended.

One helpful benefit of the 100mb System Reserved is that you now have the "Repair My Computer" console available by tapping F8 at bootup, instead of just on the DVD or Repair CD - in case Win7 fails to start.
