Did you do Step 1. That is, are you booting from a System Repair or Installation CD/DVD.

Yes it is the system reserved partition. If you followed the tutorial exactly then I don't know why you are experiencing problems. As you probably know, using Diskpart you have to be very precise.

Here is another approach
Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD

A final point. I have system reserved on 2 builds and decided not to bother on a 3rd build. Unless it's causing you grief with say Windows inbuilt system imaging or taking up a needed partition slot then I'd just leave it alone.

I am not pro in those things, but i know how to follow tutorials. Normally i find out by myself how to deal with problems witch i get during the time i use my PC/Laptop. But this time i just don't understand why it shows Partition F instead of System reserved. I will try one more time tomorrow do this steps to delete reserved partition.
Thanks for this other tutorial i guess i will find it useful sooner or later.
This third partition isn't bothering me too much, just was wondering why everyone can easily delete but i have problems with that. I like at least to try fix this small things..witch sometimes annoying me ;D

It is necessary to delete the primary partition "System" comes from the my new laptop manufacturer in order to create logical parts for backup files. I have followed what King told with either the 'system repair disk' or 'installation disk' thumb drive, but there is nothing come out with shift-F10 pressed after the language options screen appeared. It means cannot get into the diskpart mode. How can I keep on things go as said?
