    Hello CPappas,

    Welcome to the Seven Forums.

    Apparently if you have partitioned the hard drive then the 200 meg partition is not created. Also if you have another OS installed, it will update the MBR that has already been created as there cannot be 2 of them and it must go on the first sector of the first drive to be found at startup. If I understand correctly.

    Yes and now we'll get to explain 2 partitions instead of one. If they can't delete it, that's just gonna make 'em mad and they'll want to know how to get rid of it. But then that is *one* of the reasons for hanging around here. To try to prevent tragedies when we can and to help people recover from tragedies when it's tooooo late.

    Late reply (I'm new here)

    I agree completely. Biggest reasons I hang around here (or similar places) is so that I don't cause those tragedies, and so that I may help those that I can... But also to point and laugh when someone goes:
    "wtfomg?!! i jus fked ma hdd!!!! won bewt no more.... fkin mcriosfot!"

    I can't believe how long it takes to type like that.

    200Meg!! That is over 5% of my hard drive (4Gb SSD). It must be eliminated. What is the advantage of having it as a separate partition instead of boot er directory/file/thingy? Is it mounted read-only? Is it the core of the OS that tends to stay memory resident or get paged back in frequently?

    It is a big skip for small disk's head to have to lurch over 200Mb every time it accesses it.

    I am thick I need to know about the disk, does it reset the head to off-disk between reads or de-energize the head and leave it lurking in position to resume reading?

    This is an old thread and the partition has since been reduced to 100mb. It is explained in this thread what the purpose of the partition is.

    How can I manually create that hidden system partition?

    I've got to install Windows 8 on an external disk. It cannot be done automatically. Thus I created a primary partition manually, leaving 100MB of unallocated space.
    And then I installed Windows there with the deploying tool imagex.

    And it works right but the installation hasn't automatically created the 100MB System reserved partition.
    Everything has been installed on to the C: partition instead.

    How could I force Windows to install the boot files to that sytsem partition?
    I couldn't find (in any partition application) the option to tag that area of the disk as system/boot/reserved partition.
