    Hi.
    I don't see any hidden partitions neither in "Disk Manager" nor in "MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition".
    It turns Windows 7 may don't create a hidden partiton? And use for BOOT, bootmgr and System Volume Information the same partition as for Windows dir? And what does it depend: create or not create a hidden partition during install?

    On install, a very small partition is created for the bios. I used diskpart to install windows 7, and it specifically sets this small partition or you can do so in diskpart, worked nicely. Windows also maintains a shadow copy, more on that here: Shadow Copy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
