  1. http://github.com/maharmstone/quibble/issues/15 It seems that some solutions can be found. There is a project called "quibble" in GitHub that can make the Windows operating system boot from a non-NTFS file system, but it is not technically mature and has many limitations, and the author has not yet adapted to Windows 2000.
  2. Hi, is it possible to make Windows 2000 boot from exFAT partition?
  3. Yes, this is because I have fully considered the issue of multilingual translation when I wrote this article. In order to make others understand what I want to express, I try my best to use words that can be understood by most people, Rather than a variety of overly professional vocabulary and abbreviations.
  4. Yes. Because Microsoft has added a built-in digital signature to exfat.sys in Win10 20H1 and later systems, there is no need to modify the driver even for 64-bit systems. In addition, if you are interested, you can provide a translation for this tutorial and freely repost it to other forums, I will thank you very much.
  5. This is the second compressed file: exFAT.7z.002
  6. I will upload the attachment directly here, but since I can only upload a single attachment of up to 512KB in a post in the MSFN forum, I will use 7-Zip to compress the exFAT driver as two compressed packages for uploading. This is the first compressed file: exFAT.7z.001
  7. In principle, it is not recommended to use FAT32 when exFAT can be used. FAT32 cannot be installed on systems with Windows 7 or higher because the number of files in the C:\Windows\WinSxS\Manifests directory has exceeded the upper limit of the FAT32 file system. Because the maximum number of files in the same directory in FAT32 can only be 65536, if a long file name is used, the value will be even smaller. However, exFAT is different. The maximum number of files in the same directory can reach 2,796,202, so there will be no problem of the number of files exceeding the limit when used to install Windows 10. I am a professional data recovery engineer. exFAT and FAT64 are actually the same file system, but the difference between exFAT and FAT32 is not only the ability to store a single file >4GB. exFAT introduces many modern file system features on the bottom layer. For example, exFAT introduced a cluster bitmap management mechanism to solve the problem of low performance of FAT12/16/32 on mass storage devices. In addition, FAT tables formatted by exFAT are forced to 4K alignment by default, which meets the requirements of 4KB minimum IO unit for NAND flash memory. In addition, because exFAT does not have volume logfile records, it reduces the consumption of flash memory read and write bandwidth, so its performance will generally be higher than NTFS. Some advantages of installing and booting Windows system in exFAT partition: Optimize volume bitmap management and page block allocation to improve the read and write speed of flash storage media No volume log records, reducing the number of flash memory read and write operations to extend its service life The non-authority management mechanism defaults to the highest authority, and management system files no longer report insufficient authority errors Windows To Go cooperates with platforms such as Mac and Linux to have stronger interaction capabilities and wider compatibility Allows to allocate larger clusters to improve IO performance Support TFAT protection mechanism (Win8 only) Support ECC checksum (metadata only)
  8. In fact, in most cases, as long as the exFAT partition has Bootmgr PBR, Legacy boot is enough. Even if there are restrictions, the text in the error popup requires at least a reminder: If you want to boot Windows in an exFAT partition, please disable file system type detection in .ini instead of displaying the puzzling installaction drive invalid!
  9. In addition, the VHD(X) function of WinNTSetup has always been restricted to only support NTFS partitions, but in fact, Microsoft has already supported the use of VHD(X) files in FAT/exFAT partitions in versions after Windows 10 v1809. Please remove the restriction on file system type of VHD(X) function, thank you! For booting in exFAT+VHD(X) mode, please refer to: http://bbs.wuyou.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=414354&mobile=no
  10. As shown in the figure, the current version of WinNTSetup cannot install the Windows image in the exFAT partition, But in fact, I successfully installed and booted Windows on the exFAT partition many years ago. I was the first to study the exFAT file system boot. This is a detailed installation tutorial I wrote in Simplified Chinese (because I am from China) http://bbs.wuyou.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=388226&mobile=no I appologize for my grammatical mistake because English isn't my main language.Earlier versions of WinNTSetup can indeed install Windows images on non-NTFS partitions. It is known that the last version of this software without file system detection restrictions is, but the file system type restrictions have been added in subsequent versions. Now please You lift this restriction.
