That wouldn't have been created by Windows. I would suspect that would be created by the hardware supplier. I know HP will setup a separate partition. It will store their diagnostics tools. Means you don't need the CDs to load the tools in case of hardware problems.

Did you install Windows using a disk supplied by the server supplier?

You will probably find that when you boot the machine, you get a chance to enter "diagnostics" or something like that. In most cases that will come off a partition on the machine rather than internal to the machine (BIOS etc). It is an easy way to have the graphical and feature rich diagnostics without using expensive chips.
