I have a little question , and i also noticed this when i installed Windows 7. When you install Vista or 7 and you choose the partition, and then you choose format, how the hell does Vista and 7 do it so quickly ? It formats my 320GB drive in seconds !
How come ? Do you think it does it properly ?
And Thank you.

They do a quick format and not a full format.

A full format includes checking the disk for errors.

Thanks dave_1
I guess a quick format is all it needs when installing an O.S.
