Default Hard Drive work for windows update - 05-28-2013, 03:48 PM

I plan to do away with Windows 7 Starter altogether and probably install Home Premium version. So I really don't want the OEM reserved partition for resetting to factory defaults - At least I don't think there is anything there I can't download elsewhere.

I believe the reserved partition can be deleted by using diskpart from the command prompt and using the "override" parameter.

Does anyone know how to recover the deleted space so that the entire drive can be formated as one partition C: to include the space of the old OEM partition ?
