It is a 640GB hard drive. The FAT32 partition needs to be at least 120GB. I am using Ubuntu.

If you need the partition to be shared with a dualboot Windows installation, I suggest you to use a NTFS filesystem rather than a FAT32. – Sekhemty Apr 23 '13 at 7:51
    
FAT32 does not support partitions that size. Even if you manage to make a partition larger then the specification, what happens when Windows and/or Linux read the partition, cannot be determined. There is always exFAT which Windows 7 fully supports. – Ramhound Apr 23 '13 at 11:28
