problem formating fat32 to NFTS after os-x install, starting with win7 install - 09-28-2009, 08:05 AM
i am installing os-x and win7 on dell mini10v.
kinda following guide:
Mini 9 Dual Boot: OSX and Windows 7 using only a Windows Vista Machine for prepartion
got to step d:
"D - Windows 7 Install
1) Start the DellMini9 with only the Slim7 thumb drive installed into a USB port. Upon the boot press 0 for the boot menu and choose the USB boot option. This will boot the Slim7 USB drive and bring you to the first page of the Windows 7 installation menu.
2) Click the Start button to begin the installation. After that screen, on your Mini 9 press FN+shift+F10. This will bring up a command prompt. Within this command prompt we are going to format the Fat32 partition that was created during the OSX installation into a NTFS partition. Type following commands
select disk n (where n = disk number that is your SDD)
select volume n(where n = volume number that is currently formatted as FAT32)
format fs=NTFS quick
Once the formatting has completed exit out of the command prompt windows(s) and proceed to the installation screen that gives you the Custom Installation option. "
i get as far as format fs=NFTS quick, then i get error message:
"0 % completed
virtual disk service error:the file system is incompatible"
i don't understand....anyone have any ideas, or seen this before?
selected correct disk and volume.
volume 1 letter c win7 FAT32 Partition 73GB Healthy
thanks, appreciate the time and help....
