    I have been trying ethe likes of WBFS manager3.0 but it simply tries to format ALL of it as opposed to creating a separate partition and making athat one WBFS.

    You need to use a partition program to first format the area you plan to use as FAT, then allow your Manager (or Loader) to format that partition to WBFS.

    Yeah I wasnt able to do so because my partitiona lreay had a drive etter assigned to it, I had to destroy it and create a normal NFTS partition and leave space unallocated in order for WBFS manager to turn that into a WBFS drive right.

    Am I correct so far?

    Depending on what version of windows you have, you could just use disk management to create a separate FAT32 partition, or some app like partition magic, and then convert that using your WBFS program of choice.
