My E540 (20C600JHFR) has a disk which is GPT partitioned and with EFI boot. So far so good.
I've bought an NGFF 128 GB M.2 SSD card I intent to use for booting. (and install Linux Ubuntu on it)
So I need to create, populate the EFI boot partiton (first partition). So far soo good. I can do that.
But following the EFI boot partition is a 128 MB partition of unknown format (no known to me filesystem on it) which is flagged "msftres". The Windows 7 partition is flagged "msftdata" and NTFS formated.
Do you know what is the use of this second partition and should I put it on the SSD and copy it's content bit to bit from the HDD in order to be able to boot properly ?
Many thanks in advance for your help and advice. Always appreciated !
