I'm trying to install Windows 7 on a spare disk (in bay 1). Do I need to format the disk in NTSF or MS DOS (FAT) before installing Windows 7? The computer currently tells me that the drive is not formatted for installing Win 7 on it. I had used this drive before for Leopard, cloned it to another drive (bay 2), upgraded to Lion, and erased and formatted the drive in bay 1, but not for the NTSF or MS DOS (FAT).
Thanks for any help!
it... does... not.. matter... Windows lets you delete and format the drive the way it needs it to be, but fat w/ Master Boot Record (Windows partition table) in Disk Utility: partition: Advanced option.
Then pull all the other drives.
Pretend you have to start with raw drive, no OS, and DVD in hand.
