I have been doing some playing around with Citrix Provisioning Server and Windows 7 M3 Build 6801. One of the first things I noticed was that the install of Windows 7 M3 forces the creation of a 200Mb boot paritition, and most of my attempts to negate it, didn’t go well.

In a previous post, I showed you a video of Windows 7 being streamed by Citrix Provisioing Server.

What I notcied from doing that was the streamed Windows 7 did not have this boot partition, but was functioning just fine, so hmmm, I decided to see if a reverse image would fair as well. And what do you, it does. I reveresed imaged, which is where you copy the vdisk back onto a local disk, and then boot off of the local disk, and now there is no more 200Mb boot parition, and all is well.

Sure, there is more to test, but I’ll save that for another day
