Using Diamond internal storage to install Windows 7 - will it break?

Hello,

I'm considering using the diamond as my "4gb flash drive" to install Windows 7 using the instructions here. Does anyone know if I'll damage my Diamond by formatting the internal storage and making it bootable?

Thanks!

Should be fine. I have done it many times with my ps3 and install I have a portable mint linux install on there as well. Seems to be in good working order. Nice to have my desktop always available.

I've reformatted it and nothing bad happened.

I would just be sure to have the internal storage hotfix on my system before doing the format.
