At school, we have a plain Windows Domain Controller, no RM system or similar, imaged with FOG. I've just been setting up Windows 7 images and have noticed that, by default, if you simply give the Windows 7 install wizard a whole harddrive to use it seems to partition it up in to two partitions, with one being a small utility partition of some sort. However, I've had FOG image everything as "single partition" systems and they seem to boot fine after imaging. What is that small partition - swap space?

The 100MB partition labelled "System Reserved"?
