    UEFI/GPT-based hard drive partitions

    Microsoft® reserved partition (MSR)
    Beginning in Windows 10, the size of the MSR is 16 MB.

    In case of an upgrade, of course, it still uses the old MSR 128MB partition. Obviously so small, not worth worrying about.
    No apologies needed. We all learn from each other.

    Did you look at the link I posted previously ? It is quite simple and get the partition scheme correctly.
