Remove System Reserved Partition

Here’s How after installation:


bcdboot c:windows /s c:

You should get a message similar to:

Boot files successfully created.

2) Open the Disk Management GUI (you could use diskpart for scripts), locate the C: partition right-click and select “Mark Partition as Active”, select yes to the “do you want to continue message”

3) Reboot to confirm that everything is ok.

4) In Disk Management you can now delete the 100Mb System Reserved partition by right clicking on it and selecting “Delete volume”

5) Re-claim the extra 100Mb using a partitioning tool like partition magic or gparted (My prefered)


Heres how during Setup:

Open a command prompt in the Windows setup using Shift+F10 at the disk manager screen

Type the Following:


DISKPART> select disk 0

DISKPART> create partition primary

DISKPART> list volume

You should now see your new Primary partition

Switch back to the setup screen, refresh the disk partitions and click install
