I was formatting one my PCs to perform testing.
The first partition seems to be EFI or something that I shouldn't touch.
When creating a partition, Windows 7 automatically creates a 100MB blank partition before the partition that it will be installed on (which is then the 3rd partition). Why is this and what is this for?
With Windows XP, I can create a partition and IIRC, sometimes I may have a blank partition at the end which is small (approx. 8MB).
Can someone explain why Windows 7 creates a 100MB partition before the partition that it will be installed on? And why at other times there will be a tiny partition at the end? (NOTE I only care about the 100MB before my main partition).
