Hi,I uninstalled my Windows 8.1 form my SSD.I wanted clean installation so i deleted C: drive.After making new partition setup told me that Windows will create small partition for important files.I read on internet what is stored on that partition but I am wondering is that small partion bad or good thing (i mean should i allow setup to create that small partition).Also is this partition vulnerable to viruses or something else and can i remove it on next installation and is that partition good for my SSD.Sorry for my bad english.

A System Reserved partition is normal and is required to boot Windows. 

 

On a MBR disk would would have the System Reserved Partition (usually 100MB) and the Windows Partition along with any OEM recovery partition.

 

On a GPT disk you would have a EFI/ESP System Partition, the Microsoft System Reserved Partition (MSR), and the Windows Partition.

No problem. The OEM partition is a factory reset partition which you would not have as you built your own computer.
