Bootable thumbdrive

Hi all!

I trying to modify my bootable thumbdrive to be seen in window OS when i plug in. I did a FAT32 partition for it but it seem like!

"windows only recognizes the first primary partition on a removable device"

My 1st partition is my Ubuntu OS partition ext4, is there a way to go about solving this problem?

I thought there was a third-party ext3 driver for windows, but perhaps not.

You could reorder the partitions so the fat32 comes first?

Hi Cornona

thank for the reply, i using gparted for the partitioning, i believe i cannot reorder the partitions (maybe is i too noob). Can i do it with fdisk? i'm not good with fdisk can you guide me to it?

It might be less work to just back up the files and create from scratch.
