    In Summary:

    1. The System Reserved 'drive' only appears if you upgrade to Win 8 or if you create the partition to install Win 8 when you are installing it.
    2. It does no harm to your PC - Windows did create it at installation for a reason.
    3. Once created it can be removed - but this is not easy and is not just a case of 'deleting' it
    4. It can be hidden from Explorer by simply removing the 'drive' letter in Disk Management

    Reading the links I posted explain all of this - but more fully.
    The System reserved showing in My Computer is most likely caused, by incorrectly install of the dual boot, thereby making two System reserved, which is very harmful.

    No need to format System Reserved.



    6, I inserted win 8 n and choose language and again custom option was choosen and this time I formatted new disk made drive of 30 gb and did next and rest same process and went to windows 8 desktop....same I was doing many times but I didn't see the system 100 MB disk....


    Looks like, you have Windows 7 boot files on Windows 7 C: (which is Windows 8 D: )

    & Windows 8 boot files on System Reserved.

    All boot files should be on System Reserved.
