I suspect you are talking about either or both the boot or system
partitions[they are usually one and the same, although not necessarily] and
there are restrictions on those partitions i.e. no reformatting (from
Windows, anyway), no deleting and so on.
'Thems the breaks. Perhaps a third party software(s) can do the trick if you
want to risk it?
