when I try to upload the retropi image to my SD Card (with Win32DiskImager), it changes the format of the card back to FAT, making it not able to boot
Have you tried to boot from the SD card? If so what happens and what error, if any do you see?
The retropi image contains all the raw data needed to create a bootable SD card. Win32DiskImager (and other tools) write that data to the target card replacing everything that is on it
. This will likely change both the number and format of partitions on the card, for raspbian that'll replace the single FAT32 partition with a FAT partition and an ext4 partition. Not sure what retropi will do as I've never used it.
So, what I suggest you do is write the image to the SD card and try to boot from it. Should the boot fail, contact the retropi developers (do they have a forum?) for help specifically with their image.
Edit: probably could have phrased that better. My intent was to point you in the right direction, not to tell you to go away and ask someone else...
