Hi,

I am installing Windows 2008 R2 Standard on my new R310. I see following partitions.
Disk 0 Partition 1          OEM (Reserved)
Disk 0 Partition 2: 0S    System

 Partitions
What are they used for? Is it safe to remove them?

Thanks,
Veljko

Diagnostics.  If doing a clean install, it is completely safe to delete them.  Just keep in mind that Windows will create its own Reserved partition when you install ... this is normal.
