Hello Siraj, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you're just wanting to create an image backup, then you could use the free Macrium Reflect instead that's up to date if you like.

I'm not sure, but I believe that Win7 will not run on a fat32 filesystem; I believe it has to be NTFS.

And why are you converting to fat32 in the first place? NTFS is a more reliable filesystem.
