Help needed on Why on a New Comp that I have just bought as the C:\ drive With OS on it NTFS,

and Backup Drive D:\ with drivers on NTFS

but the E:\ Drive which is the Recover Drive Fat32

Any reason that you can think why they have done it that way

Fat32 can be seen by a dos startup disk, NTFS can't. It's the same on my mesh machine

But why does it need to see Dos when it all operates from the CD recovery, although it as got a floppy drive

  Reevey11 21:11 28 Apr 2004

I think that the installation program still uses dos to addess the hard drives and start the main windows installation program.

Someone else may be able to confirm this
