What do you want to accomplish? Make sda1 disappear from Ubuntu? Can you show us the output of df -h? –  Marios Zindilis Aug 2 '12 at 15:01

The system reserverd partition is used mainly for a system to restore Windows to factory defaults. There is no reason to hide it. Please press Alt+F2 and type:

gksu gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/95-hide-ntfs.rules

in the window, paste:

# 95-hide-ntfs.rules
# /dev/sda1 System_Reserved as hidden partition
# in /etc/udev/rules.d
##################################################

ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="hide_partitions_end"
SUBSYSTEM!="block", GOTO="hide_partitions_end"
KERNEL=="loop*|ram*", GOTO="hide_partitions_end"

##################################################

# Partition sda1 hide from gnome
KERNEL=="sda1", ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_HIDE}="1"

##################################################

LABEL="hide_partitions_end"

and use File-> Save. Reboot, and see if it helps.

If not, continue below.

Press Alt+F2 again and type:

gksudo leafpad /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/20-storage-methods.fdi

and press Enter. Find exactly these lines(Ctrl+F and careful eyes will be useful):

<match key="volume.fstype" string_outof="ntfs;vfat">
<match key="volume.label" string="RECOVERY">
<merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
</match>

and replace them with :

 <match key="volume.fstype" string_outof="ntfs;vfat">
<!-- Win7 ships some desktop with a System_Reserved partition -->
<match key="volume.label" string="System Reserved">
<merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
</match>
<!-- Win ships some desktop with a recovery partition -->
<match key="volume.label" string="RECOVERY">
<merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
</match>

Save and reboot.

Welcome to Ubuntu & Linux.

In answer to your question 'windows "system reserved" can be mounted on ubuntu' because you now have full access & control over your computer.

You can do whatever you want, this is not an error or a bug, it's a bonus.

You could try and hide the partition using the other answer, or just leave it alone.

Is this experienced by me only? 11.10 doesn't gave me such a thing @Fernhill Linux Project –  aditya Aug 3 '12 at 11:58
    
You could take the time to specify how to hide it. –  hexafraction Aug 3 '12 at 12:20
