Actually, it seems both claims regarding Windows and partitions on removable storage are somewhat true.
Indeed, USB hard drives are an exception; as I said - multiple partitions on USB hard drives work since Vista.
At least on Win10, it is possible to partition USB flash drives too. It may be needed to use Diskpart once to remove the old partition, before it can be repartitioned, as described here:

I tried that on a USB flash drive, and low and behold - both partitions are fully recognizable by any Win10 PC. However, my Win7 laptop could only access the first partiition. It sees the other one, but cannot assign letters to it (Disk Management applet complains of an error when you try).
I wonder if there is some patch for Win7 that can address this.
