--- Comment #2 from Frederic Crozat <fcrozat@xxxxxxxx> ---
From what I found
(http://www.howtogeek.com/192772/what-is-the-system-reserved-partition-and-can-you-delete-it/
and other google links), System reserved partition is only used since Win7 and
isn't "mandatory" (but is the default when installing on a fresh disk).

But it looks like safe to assume when System reversed partition is detected,
other Windows 7/8/10 partitions can be ignored (ie the bootmanager used for
Windows is on the system reversed partition.
