Windows 7: Deleted Win 7 100mb partition

Deleted Win 7 100mb partition

During a re-install of Win 7 I deleted the 100mb system partition. The install didn't rebuild this partition. The computer runs fine but will not do a restart from either the shutdown menu or from a program restart window. Don't know if the two are related but I need to rebuild the system partition. Looking for some instructions.

Thanks for the help.

There is tutorial on the forum about removing that 100mb partition and reloading the info that was there in the main partition. Not sure where it's at I will look. Found it not sure about this in general so get some others to chime in with help. System Reserved Partition - Delete If you don't have a install DVD I suspect a recovery disc will get you to the command area. Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs — The NeoSmart Files

Mark Win7 active, Boot the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots to write the System MBR to Win7.

I got my system reserved partition mixed up with the memory card I inserted. I formatted the System Reserved partition. I have yet to reboot and fear my system may not start if I do. Is it possible to repopulate this partition with the files it needs?
