Installation Program Does Not Support NTFS For Hard Drive Installation
Last modified: 2012-03-20 09:00:22 EDT
According to the documentation of both RHEL and Fedora. The Installation Program cannot find and utilize images in an NTFS partition.
I hope you can add NTFS support Installation Program. May be the Installation Kernel is more accurate.
Most Microsoft Windows people today use NTFS exclusively. Enabling Hard Drive Installation for such people would make switching to RHEL or Fedora more smooth.
Installation Program would read NTFS partition only. Therefore it should be quite safe.
We cannot include this support in RHEL. Sorry.

Some other distributions do offer win32 installation option.
NTFS support is a legal grey area, so we do not want to get into that.
