  • Boot files and various other system files. It is only created at install on a hard disk that has not been previously partitioned. If it has been partitioned before, the same files are written to the C: drive instead.

    It definitely covers the ESP, which is the "System Reserved" partition you see in the disk management MMC snap-in.
