Question about the 100 mb partition of 2008 server

By wboyle85 ·
It's not about what the partition is used for, it's more of how you remove it. I just finished my 2008 server class at my school and I installed Windows 7, it let me remove everything except the 100 mb partition. It's not that I'm going to run out of space it seeings how I have over 1TB of hard drive space, it just bothers me that I am unable to remove it. Any help is appreciated.

The easy way here is to wipe the drive before installing any other OS.

But you can try GParted to remove the partition but it may adversely affect the newly installed OS.

Windows Seven also uses a 100MB system reserved partition for some boot files - don't try to delete it!

I am aware of what it is

Thanks for the replys on what the 100 mb partition does, but I was already aware of what it is. The thing is that it isn't the 100 mb partition from windows 7, its the 100 mb partition from 2008 server that I already removed, I am about to try GParted right now.
