    You have received an incomprehensible error message, because the System Reserved partition is not required when you are using the GPT partition style (see screenshots below).

    Partition 1 - 500 MB (EFI System Partition) - UEFI firmware loads files stored on the EFI System partition to start installed operating systems.

    Partition 2 - 40 MB (OEM Partition) Some computer manufacturers (Lenovo/Sony/Dell) have their own GUIDs for partitions that hold boot loaders to launch manufacturer-specific recovery tools.

    Partition 3 - 1.73 GB (Recovery Partition) This partition contains Windows Recovery Environment tools and utilities, allowing the user to repair problems that affect the system drive.

    Partition 4 - (Primary Partition)

    Partition 5 - (Primary Partition)

    Partition 6 - 8.32 GB (Recovery Partition) - This partition contains the recovery image that would be restored to the system drive if the Refresh or Reset option in Windows 8/8.1 is used.

    MSR (Reserved) partition not visible within Windows Disk Management.
