Windows 10: 101 mb unallocated

    101 mb unallocated

    Hi everyone, just signed up!

    I had windows 7 on my PC, I was messing around in disk management and set random partitions to active. After that when I'd reboot my PC I would get a screen that said "bootmgr is missing," I didn't actually mind cause I have a copy of windows 10 that I've been meaning to install. So I went ahead and did that, installed it and it was up and running. However when I had windows 7, for Disk 0 in disk management, the 101 mb partition showed as "system reserved", it was also set as active. But now as you can see from the screenshot, after clean installing windows 10, it shows as unallocated and the other partition shows as active. How can I fix this?

    Looks like you have 2 drives and C: is the boot/system drive. I for one would not be at all concerned about 101MB as long as the computer is usable, it is quite small and in the real world wouldn't hold much data, not even as much as contained on a 650MB or 700MB CD disc nor any of the USB Thumb/Flash drives now on the market or the last few years [smallest I every had was 128MB].

    yea I was thinking it didn't matter and was just going to leave it alone given how small it is. The computer is definitely usable, so guess I am good.

    Thanks for the help. :)
