    Yes it is...The OS, firmware, and the 300MB partition takes up that space.

    300 mb for the partition, and the others for the firmware, and operating system.

    You should really do research on how hard drives / solid state drives are formatted.

    Whenever you see the size of a Hard Drive being sold, it is never the size it says. There is always a bit less.

    For Example, a 320 GB HDD will actually only have 291 GB.
