    managed to activate win 7 on dell dimension E520. But now the System reserved Folder is always visible. Does anyone know how to re-hide it. I changed the driver letter but it did not hide it.

    Thanks

    Go To Disk Management in WIndows 7 and UnMount the partition.

    You can't totally hide it from the Disk Management display. It's always been there and always will be because it exists. You can remove the drive letter from it so it doesn't show up anywhere else in Windows, but that's all (and the way it was when you first installed).

    I guess that is what he wants to do.

    Run diskmgmt.msc

    Find your System Reserved Partition and right click it. Click on Assign Letter. Remove the letter the already defined letter.

    Go to Run-->Type diskpart --> type list volume --> type select volume (system reserved vol number) [e.g- select volume 0]

    your volume will be selected.

    now --> type remove

    your drive will be disappeared........!:):):):)
