Exclamation 
Well, anyone have a guide thats simpler to understand? Im using a My Passport 2TB drive, I have a 1 TB partition for storing files(I want to keep it intact), and 350 GB allocated for the OS. When I start up WinToUsb, and select my disk, this appears(Look in attachments). HELP
P.S My os is windows 7 pro 32 bit. What im trying to install on the drive is windows 8.1 pro 64 bit.

You need to format these two partition. For more information, please refer to the guidelines Here: http://www.easyuefi.com/wintousb/faq/en_US/How-to-use-WinToUSB.html

I have the 350 gigabyte partition formatted as NTFS. Do I need to create a smaller partition in the 350 gig one for the system partition? If so, how big?

Or can I just use the 350 gigabyte partition as the boot AND the system partition? I have the 350 gigabyte partition formatted to NTFS, but It still appears as "unknown". Plus, there are no bubbles for me to select the partition.

Oh wait, even though I did a complete format, the files from my previous linux partition are still there, and now its back to appearing as EXT3. Damn. Is there anyway that I can format it in windows?

You could create a virtual machine using virtualbox or vmware and install 8.1 into that. Safest way of having two (or more) operating systems
