How to Prevent Windows 7 from Creating a Hidden /Recovery /System Reserved Partition during Installation
it will not install the reserved partition but it will install a system and a boot partition for sure.....make some google about NTFS files sytem, Windows nt, xp, vista, 7 server 2000, 2003, 2008 need a system and boot partition if use on NTFS

what you see in your example is a miss label ( by windows ) of a 20 g system and boot partition combine

that's the problem you confuse System Reserve with system partition. the system partition is there since they release the first NT4

it's where you are again wrong ...... windows 7 can be boot from a scii drive and also from a network drive and you don't need a firmware for it

the purpose of the system partition, is to redirect the system to a boot partition .

now as for know if it's doable on the IOxtreme, it have to by try, not just guess
