    a number of the simpler solutions i've found for this either didn't work, or stopped working (possibly because of hotfixes i integrated). here's a simple way to do this from the GUI installer:

    * start with no partitions (all unallocated space)
    * create a small partition (i used 1024 MB) - windows cannot install here, so no prompt for the 'system reserved' partition
    * expand the small partition into the unallocated space

    done!

    You can do that when installing windows 7 just use advanced settings.
