    Windows 7 x64 SP1 Home Premium/Win 8.1 in VBox


    My install is in VMPlayer but I just allowed the installer to default. It was the same when I originally installed in VBox.

    It seems like a few people are getting 350mb for their system reserved partition Keith. Interesting that you say its using 206Mb. Mine is only 200Mb and contains sevens boot file too.

    Mike, sysres is essential only if you need to use bootlocker.

    Danny, 100 mb is the default size created by the installer but it can be expanded by the user. Many OEM machines come with peculiar sysres sizes say 101 mb, 200 mb and so on. FYI, the 100 mb partition is too small to contain the actual recovery files, those are actually placed on the windows drive. Some OEM machines even come with sysres bigger than a gig and the recovery files placed on sysres.

    It isn't a necessity, I suppose it boils down to personal preference.

    Bill2 Do you have any information on Windows 8 creating the system reserved partition at 350Mb and how this may effect a dual boot with an already created smaller partition.

    Danny I'm yet to dual boot 7 and 8 cos am using 8 full fledged. But what I saw while helping paarkhi yesterday (you can search that thread) was that sometimes the sysres may not be big enough if you're dual booting. Paarkhi increased its size to 650 mb (though that large may not be required) and only after that was he able to install 8.

    I'm dual booting and all I did was create a new partition and install the DP8102.
    No sysres at all. Simple. Easy peasy. Dual boot is fine. I've already been through a refresh.
