Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

But there is also fat16
All this file type can be created with geparted and also the file systems used by linux (linux native file systems)
Providing some details on your computer and windows version might help us provide some better answers. Typically recovery disks can automatically recreate partition(s) and restore windows to its original out of the box condition. If the recovery disk is dependent on a hidden data partition then gparted will not be able to create its contents.
