Is there a way to install windows 7 without the new 100mb hidden partition it is adding by default? What is that partition even for? I have an environment that makes it so I can't have that partition.

"That partition is the ""System Reserved"" partition, and is used for Bitlocker and as a safe place to keep the boot and WinPE files that may be needed for recovery in case of a disaster.

See Molly's answer here: Can the Windows 7 system reserved partition be deleted without problems?"
