Operating System Version:Windows XP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

I've just put a new PC together. When I fired it up everything went OK. But when I was asked which partition to choose, the only option was NTFS. So I had to go ahead. But now I've got it up and running I want to change it to FAT32. I don't know if I'm missing something really obvious. There is loads of info about changing it to NTFS, but not the other way. Thanks

When in Rome...

That's because it cannot be done without removing the partition and starting over!

Is the reason you want FAT32 because you want to Dual Boot with another version of Windows? If so, that other version of Windows has to be installed before installing WinXP.
