    Good. Always remember the 15% free space required for any Windows version to work properly. 4.5 GB in this case.

    I made a 50GB partition on the 7x32 drive for Win 8 and it is still 100MB with 48MB free. It hasn't increased with this setup.

    "System Reserved Partition?"
    Where are you guys seeing that?

    I hate to sound like a noob (I'm not) but I've never had to worry about "System Reserved Partition" or ever been confronted with sizing whatever it is.

    Your windows 7 partition contains your boot files. It depends on how you installed windows 7.If you install to unallocated space it will create a small system reserved partition 100Mb at the beginning of the drive to hold the boot files and WinRE and mark that active to boot from. I always create this partition before I install window 7 and make it 200Mb as advised by some guys over at seven.

    Thanks, Danny.

    I have never done that. Ever.
    I just create a partition and install the OS.

    What's the advantage?
    I am now using the Win8 OS selection menu and I can boot into either Win8 8102.109 or Win7.
    I have never setup a "System Reserved Partition."
