Hello,

I am making a linux VPS, but I need the VPS file(.vhd - hyperv) to have a small partition that windows can natively read/modify. Can someone please help with instructions on how to create an ntfs or fat32 partition on CentOS 6 for someone not experienced with linux partitioning?

Thank you.

If you have your disk or partition available (you can use cfdisk or fdisk or parted, depends on what your disk is configured as), you can format with following:

For FAT32:

mkfs -t vfat /dev/partition-device-name

For NTFS, though it could've changed in the mean time:

mkntfs -Q /dev/partition-device-name  --- For NTFS

It might be that you need to install ntfs-3g before you're able to format in NTFS

Install NTFS-3G :

# yum install ntfs-3g  -y

Fuse might be interesting as well for mounting the NTFS:

# yum install fuse -y

When all this is done, you might need to mount the NTFS/FAT32 partition/disk??
