But I would assume that choice would NOT be for installing the Win7 OS
itself into such a partition, given the direction Microsoft has been going.
In fact, I would be surprised if Win7 even allowed you to install Windows
(the OS) directly into anything but NTFS. Am I wrong there?
I mean, starting with WinXP, it seems to me that the option to allow WinXP
to be installed into FAT32 was only "reluctantly" added. And I thought even
that was dropped with Vista and later OS's. Which would suggest anything
FAT related went out the window.
That sure does not surprise me.
It will be interesting to hear if there if it is even possible. I just
doubt if Microsoft would have supported this though, considering what I
wrote above, and the direction of things - starting way back with WinXP,
where even installing the WinXP OS into a FAT32 partition was really
discouraged by Microsoft. But I could be missing something.
