    Windows 10 Upgrade OEM Reserved Partition


    I upgraded my custom built desktop from Windows 8.1 Pro With Media Center (Originally Windows 7 Pro Retail), and I've noticed I now have an OEM (Reserved) partition on my drive. I'm just about to do a clean install, and would like to know if it's safe to delete or whether I have to leave it there?

    Yes, you can safely remove it, I just did it myself, clean setup works just fine.
