If a clean install of Windows is an option the 100MB System Reserved partition can be eliminated entirely.

I recommend to eliminate yourself! If System Reserved partition is not created then same files are stored into C:/Recovery folder.

What is the point of not going with default partition scheme?

Hello to all members, my newbie post... 8)

Is it *obligatory* to encrypt Bitlocker's 100-Mb partition?
In my opinion there are no sensitive data stored on it, just the boot files!?

Best regards!

Somewhere I've fond that for proper Windows7 boot, both partitions must be encrypted. This 100MB and of course partition with operating system. I have do that, all works fine. I haven't trying encrypting only system partition without encrypting this 100MB bit locker partition.

I did, and there is no problem.

You do not have to encrypt it! But think about why you encrypt in the first place. To secure your system. Why not encrypt everything then? You might wanna hide your whole systems configuration to any unwanted 3rd person. So do it right and no half things IMHO
