    Boot Camp wants a FAT formatted USB drive, do I have to format my entire 128GB flash drive, or can I partition it? Possibly irrelevant, but my plan was to put the Windows image on the USB too, I have DVD-Rs (and probably the last iMac with an internal optical drive!) but it seems to be more of a hassle. Plus I feel like I'm spinning dust all around the inside.

    The OS I want to use is Windows 7

    My hardware:

    Mid 2011 27" iMac

    PNY USB3 128GB

    Yes, you can format it in a separate partition.
