Before you begin all this, the original post doesn't make it very clear that you MUST have a backup of all the files in your windows installation.

Also, be aware that I don't believe that any special permissions will be copied over with the files - NTFS has a very rich set of ACLs that it supports and I don't think this information will be preserved. I don't know if it matters, but I believe that some critical system files should have certain permissions under Windows.

Maybe in the conversion from FAT32 to NTFS once you've got Windows all restored then the correct permissions are applied as FAT32 doesn't support any kind of ACLs or extended attributes.

If you have been using Services for Macintosh or Extreme•Z IP on the Windows side of things, be aware that it stores resource fork information for Macs in NTFS alternate data streams, and this data will be lost if you follow the steps outlined above.
