    Hi
    Forgive me for asking this cause i dont really understand it all .... OEM partition , i have one of 50mb ... its a Dell XPS M1730 . I put on win 7 Ulitmate 64bit from the site here activated by the 1.7 loader .... so i think i remember seeing somewhere on here that i should delete this partition ??

    U shouldn't delete this partition .. however u can prevent to create this hidden partition during installation..
    there is a guide here in MDL to prevent it.. search it..

    that 50MB partition is not OEM's one. It is Utilities partition to control which button to be pressed, MD or Power. Delete this partition, your DELL MD will be fail.
