common update fault.

you need to unasign a drive letter to this partition.

  1. Start the Windows Disk Management Console. Click 'Start', type 'diskmgmt.msc' (without quotes) and press ENTER.
  2. In the Windows that opens, right click on the 'System Reserved' partition in the lower pane and select 'Change Drive Letter and Paths..'
  3. In the dialog that opens, click the 'Remove' button.
  4. Close the Disk Management Console.
