windows 10 sees disk as exFat but Windows 7 incorectly sees it as Fat32 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a usb flash drive which is correctly seen in Windows 10 as GPT with ExFat filesystem.  However putting this drive into a windows 7 machine, disk management says the partition is FAT32 and can't do anything with it, no drive letter, nothing.

    I had a look at the GPT partition type which reported as a Basic Data Partition.  I read that the filesystem is then further decided in the Bios Parameter Block.   But I've got no idea how to fix it.

    suggestions?

    thanks
