Had to reformat :swearing:

Anyway the first time I installed W7 there was no such partiton stealing my edge(see pic).

For Windows 7 users who do not intend to use BitLocker, the 100 MB partition can be removed subsequently and easily in Disk Management, the built-in partition manager of Windows 7.

No elaboration!
Because I can't remove it with disk management.

Nods, when I installed mine it asked me if it was ok to reserve the partition. I haven't run into an instance where I needed it yet, but it has only been a few days

After a bit more reading, it looks like the partition can only be removed during a fresh install.
Sorry Grunion, jump the gun there.
Anyways whats 100mb going to do to you?
