Windows 7: Clean Install Formating Question

Clean Install Formating Question

Hello Again,

I think I may have done something silly.

I did a clean install yesterday. When I got to the partitioner in the "installer" I deleted all of the existing partitions and then created one new partition from the entire volume (except for the 100mb that Windows takes) and then clicked next.

What I didn't do, is format that new partition I made! Is this a problem? Or did the installer automatically format it during the install process.

If not, should I re-do the install? I was hoping for a nice, super clean, install. Something inside me feels dirty for not having formated the disk.

Best,
Eamon

Windows formats for you, do not be concerned.
