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 w7 installer will take care of all formatting and correct alignment. If you did format to NTFS the installer won't need to do that.
