Hi everyone, I know for Windows, after XP, when you do an install, Windows creates two separate partitions. One being the System Parition (Housing all of the boot files, boot sector and it's code, and all sorts of decryption coding and the like) and it also creates the Boot Partition (housing the OS and user config, registry, and userspace files) (not to mention any OEM partition if you buy your PC from Dell, or ACER etc..) My question is this.. On my PC when I go to Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Disk Management, I see only one big partition. C:\. And the flags are set to System, Boot, Primary, Active, Page, and Crash Dump) This is Windows 7 i'm running. I also asked my gf to check her computer and she has the same exact setup and she's running Windows 8. I've uploaded a pic of my Partition. So I gotta ask, if what I've read and seen online is true...that there should be two partitions...one for boot, and one for system...why do we both have a combined partition of just C:\?
