Install on FAT32
Can someone tell me if Vista will install on a HD formatted FAT32, and is
there an option to keep the file system FAT32 after installation?

Re: Install on FAT32
Vista won't install on a FAT32 partition. It will recognize and use other
FAT32 partitions but it must be installed on a NTFS partition.
