    I Have a new Boot partition on my c drive after clean install


    After a complete re-install of win 10 I noticed I had this new boot partition. this is on a MBR drive BTW
    In my BIOS I can choose to boot to either the drive or the boot Manager. Both work !

    So what is the reason for the boot manager ?

    thanks

    Booting from the drive or the boot manager are the same. They both use the files contained in the boot partition. I believe booting from the drive is legacy mode and booting from boot manager is EFI mode. In your circumstances, not much difference. If you really need a free spot for an additional primary partition (because MBR is limited to 4), there is a process that you can move the boot files to the operating system partition.

    Ah! thanks.
    Is there a known purpose for that? can you add other OS's to the manager ?

    Yes, you can other OS's to the BCD store (referred to as boot manager). With programs like EasyBCD you can even add bootable ISO images and Virtual Hard Drives (VHD).
