How to Remove Extra Windows Boot Partition

By default, Windows 7 and later versions of this operating system may create a small additional boot partition on the system drive when you install the operating system. If this causes any troubles, the extra boot partition can be removed before installing Windows by following these steps:

  1. Boot your Windows installation disc.

  2. In the Windows installer screen, click 'Install now' > 'Custom (advanced)'.

  3. Click 'Drive Options'.

  4. Select the main system partition and delete it by clicking 'Delete' and 'OK'.

  5. Select the 'System Reserved' partition, click 'Extend', and increase its size so that the operating system can be installed to it.

  6. Click 'Apply' and 'OK'.

  7. Install Windows on the 'System Reserved' partition.
