RE: Thanks

If you plan to truly 'switch' from Mac to PC, you should consider backing up your files then reformatting your disk using the "Mac OS Extended" file system. Then copy your files back over to the newly formatted disk. You can use the Mac's Disk Utility program to partition and format your disk.

If you plan to share your disk going back and forth between the PC and Mac, you will want the disk formatted as "FAT" as Macs and PCs can deal with the old archaic "FAT" file system. You can also partition and format "FAT" with the Mac's Disk Utility.

Mac cannot natively mount a NTFS file system without third party software so I wouldn't recommend using it.
