I have External HDD SATA USB 2.0 – Format: NTFS. Now I am going to set up a new partition. Would it be possible to format the second partition in FAT/FAT32? Anyone tried this?

    Yes, there's no problem at all, and in fact it's a common scheme for those who want to store a system image on the hard disc (bypassing Microsoft's own backup, that is). Just do it!

    Create a new partition, and that new one format it like FAT/FAT32

    Sure, you can. You can do that while installing your Windows OS. However, if you have missed to do that, then you can use free Partition Manager softwares like EASEUS Partition Master 9.1.1 Home Edition (Freeware) which you can download and install from http://www.filehippo.com/download_easeus_partition_master_home/ .
