When you have Win 7 installed with 100mb partition, where are you going to backup to?
Greg and theog, it is of great reassurance to me (as it should be to the OPs) that you have my back. A warm thank you!

Cheers!

If anybody of you are in touch with Microsoft, please, tell them, that it would be very nice to have the option to create that partition during installation of windows 8 regardless the state of hard drive´s partitions...

This thread can be closed. Thanks to everyone who gave me any suggestion. I wish you a nice day.

Thanks again, you can see my answer above. I lend another hard drive and I am copying files to that drive and after that install fresh copy of windows 7 x64.

I have done this with other partitions on the drive. I deleted the first partition to create unallocated space and the System partition was created. Just a fluke maybe.

Gary;

emel said that the D: partition was showing as "System" in the quote above. Can't really tell now how or why that happened? I have seen Windows automatically assign another partition as "Active" (System) when marking an active partition in-active. Seems there MUST be one active partition ... or else. Anyway, that made his project really difficult for him. Could have used "diskpart" to mark D: in-active, but not everyone is willing to try command line utilities. Could have used a third party utility like Partition Wizard to mark it in-active. In the end, it was just easier for emel to borrow a hard drive to save everything and install on a blank hard drive.
