So I made a 50GB Windows partition in Boot Camp. Of course the default format is FAT-32, and I want NTFS. So I boot up off the Windows XP CD to install, and in order to reformat the partition it says I have to delete it (just simply installing on the partition won't bring up any reformatting options). So to reiterate, it looks like this: Partition 1 <200MB> (Unknown) Partition 2 <170GB> (Mac OS X) Unknown <128MB> (Unknown) Partition 3 <50GB> (where Win XP will be installed) If I delete Partition 3, it also removes that 128MB partition as well (which Boot Camp must have made because it was never there before). My question is, is the 128MB "space" necessary.
