    Here is a Question.
    Does Traditional BIOS (Not UEFI) Support Device Such as A Flash Drive FOrmatted as FAT32?

    Extras : AFAIK. UEFI SUpports FAt32 but not NTFS

    Of course (only EFI specs have that restriction, for whatever strange reason).

    Fortunately, there are rumors from people claiming some new mobos come up with UEFIs which support NTFS. I really hope this is true...

    Yes, some have implemented NTFS drivers. It's a silly restriction that might have to do with patents/licensing.
