Windows 7: regarding SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

regarding SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

When using diskpart, I'm noticing it never wants you to format when I go back in to the installer. Am I correct in assuming diskpart will format the drives with NTFS?

Do I need to realign the SSD on the reinstall?


Thank you

Diskpart will format to the file system you tell it to. The Windows 7 installer will take care of all formatting and correct alignment. If you did format to NTFS the installer won't need to do that.
