Troubleshoot: How to remove the small mysterious partition from your system hard drive

Windows 7 has a new feature included. The “stub” of a partition. It is able to bring us two functions. First, it has the capability to hold the Boot Manager code and Boot Configuration Database. Second, it reserves space for the startup files required by the BitLocker Drive Encryption feature. If you’re looking to encrypt your system drive using BitLocker, it is not required to repartition your system drive.
If you’re trying to avoid BitLocker and if you prefer to do without the additional complexity of this System Reserved partition, your best bet is to make sure it’s never created. In order to perform a clean installation starting from an unformatted hard drive, it is required to use different disk-management utility such as the setup disk available from many hard-disk manufactures or a startup disk from Windows Vista. First, it is required to create a single primary partition using all unallocated space and then it is required to point the installer to the newly created partition as the setup location.

Remember that you can’t use the graphical disk-management tools available from the Windows 7 DVD to perform this task. Once you finish using the alternative tool to create a partition on the drive, you can point to Windows 7 Installer to that location and it will proceed.
If you feel, you can manage with command-line disk management tools, you can use the Diskpart utility from the setup program to create the necessary partition.

In the beginning of setup, before you select the location where you want to install Windows:
1.    First, use the Shift+F10 keys to open a Command Prompt window or you can manually open it.
2.    Now, type diskpart to enter the Diskpart environment.
3.    For instance, if you’ve a single clean hard disk, it is required to use select disk 0 and create partition primary to manually create a new partition.
4.    Now, using this new partition as the setup location, you can continue installing the Windows 7.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
