Mandatory HD format when installing Vista?



Does anyone know if Vista automatically, or requires you to, format the drive you are installing to? I’ve got a 3 month old drive that has 120GB space open, but also has another 200GB of data. Never been used as a boot drive, so no old files that should conflict.




Not unless your HD is FAT32. Windows VISTA now REQUIRES to be installed on an NTFS partition.


Thanks for the confirmation.
