    How to seprate system reserved(100 MB) from partition(win8


    I have my system reserved partition attached with my personal partition and i have a lot of useful data in it.
    because of it i'm not able to format system reserved at start to avoid boot loader asking me wether you want to choose between windows 8 or the earlier version of windows.

    Can anybody tell me that how can I seperate system reserved from my partition .
    System reserved is attached with My folder (G)

    Thanks in advance

    Hi there

    Before you start make sure you have Windows recovery disk or install disk -- the Tutorial section on the Forum will tell you how to create that.
    Also ensure that the C drive is nr 1 in the BOOT list in the BIOS -- you can usually find BOOT priority / Disk order settings in the BIOS.

    1) backup all your USER data from G to an external drive. Do this Backup just in case it all goes pearshaped. !!!
    2) Download GPARTED (free) and create bootable USB / DVD -- your choice. Documentation from the site.
    GParted -- A free application for graphically managing disk device partitions
    3) boot GPARTED and DELETE the system partition.

    4) Now boot the windows recovery disk and choose REPAIR system.

    It should make a separate system partition on the Disk 0.

    If it is ALREADY a separate partition then everything is OK - you don't need to do anything !!! as it's all on the same disk.

    If it actually is Integrated into the G partition then you'll have to delete the G partition, Move the C partition to the start of the freed space, boot from the recovery disk to repair windows, and after Windows re-boots create your new G partition and restore your data.

    You really need to show in your image exactly where the system partition is - like I've done from my screenshot.

    Cheers
