    No system reserved partition on my SSD


    How do I create a system reserved partition on my SSD C: drive. I have 3 other drives installed and all have reserved system partitions.

    Any help would be appreciated

    If you can boot with only your SSD connected, that means the boot loader files are present in your C: partition, and in that case, you don't need a separate System Reserved partition.

    Unless your dual booting, or multi booting other Windows OS, there should only be one system reserved partition on the boot drive. Certain install scenarios can result in it not being there. The drive already being partitioned, and the options you click during the install. Some upgrade installs etc. If I do a clean install to an un partitioned space, Windows will create it automatically, along with any other partitions it needs.

    I have disconnected all my drives except the SSD and the PC boots correctly. When I go to check out under My Computer I see the drive but no reserved drive. partition.

    When I try and upgrade Windows reports that it cannot access the system reserve partition.

    What do I now do?

    The small system reserved partition does not show in file exploder or diskmgmt.msc. You can see it using a third party disk utility like gparted from a linux session, or in Windows by using diskpart.exe from an elevated command prompt. The command sequence is:

    list disk

    select disk [n] where [n] is the number from the list disk command of the disk that holds your Windows system and boot files

    list part
