    What is the size of Your System Reserved Partition?


    Win Ten boot Loader
    Under 10240 I do believe it was 505Mb
    Under 10586.29 mine is 430Mb

    It does not matter if you are using 240 or 586. The standard size for system reserved partition is 500MB. That is what Windows installation set for MBR disk type. For GPT disk type, no partition is called System Reserved.

    I have no system reserved because I moved (copied) the boot loader to the C partition.

    I'm asking the question because I try a Win Ten new feature (Legacy). I just want to make sure that I didn't screw up the System Reserved partition. The 430Mb partition is the default one in Legacy mode (here) after a clean install (750Gb HDD).
    Thanks for help!

    That's fine if you don't use bitlocker.
