I just did a format and re-install using a purchased Win 7 disk. This machine has not even been on line yet for any updates. I was trying to use x-pud and could not get it to boot from cd. I then loaded the win 7 cd and it did boot from it. I then treated it like I was going to re-intsall using advanced. I then saw it had 3 partitions on Disk 0. They are as listed below.
Disk 0 Partition 1 - 100mb with 78.1mb free for system
Disk 0 Partition 2 - 128mb with 128mb free for MSR (reserved)
Disk 0 Partition 3 - 931.3gb with 910.0gb free for Primary
Why would there be a MSR (reserved)?
I am sure this is nothing but I have not seen this before. I have done several reformat and re-installs.
This machine has had problems that would take too long to describe. Any info is greatly appreciated.
