I suppose it is pointless if you do not believe what I am saying.  If there is a way for me to prove what I am saying is the truth or prove me wrong please let me know. Thanks for your time. 

No problem. However, Windows 7 in MBR partition layout will create a boot partition and a OS/Data partition.  The boot partition in Windows 7 is labeled System. This is where all your binaries/data is located for booting. 


In a Windows 7 system in GPT layout (which you will not use if you use your own Windows 7 disc most likely), it will have a Boot partition, OS/Data partition, and a MSR Reserved partition. MSR reserved is where the partition layout configuration and data is located.


Every partition except the OS/Data partition, C:, is hidden... or is suppose to be.



If you come from a linux background like I do, you'll understand why there are separate partitions for an entire OS.
