Hello,
It is my understanding that because the main windows 11 installation files are greater than 4gb I have to start by deleting all partitions on my usb stick. Then I need to create a 1gb partition as fat32 and a second partition with the remaining usb disk space as ntfs. With the 1gb fat32 partition containing all of the files I need to boot. I hope this is correct.

I will be installing on a new m2 SSD and I am wondering if the windows 11 installation automatically formats the new SSD drive? Is there anything I need to do with the drive itself to prepare for the windows install?
