Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 with one partition?

30 Apr 2012   #11


It's easier to use the installer to Delete/Create partitions, and the Clean command is only really needed if there are installation problems related to boot sector code needing overwriting.

Yours is a rare case because you don't want System Reserved when most users don't care. But we are still glad to help.

Windows 7 Home Preminum 64 bit

You have helped a lot Greg and perhaps I have to get over Windows 7 installing the separate System Reserve partition. Would say for most that install Windows 7 like you say that just following the installer is definitely the easier path. I am trying to increase my knowledge of different options including a better understanding of the MBR and independently booting different hard drives etc I have been experimenting with.
Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
