Typically, when the create partition command is invoked, there's a default alignment of 1024, at least for the Windows 7 version. Say these commands were issued.
select disk 0 clean convert gpt create partition efi size=40 offset=1024 format quick fs=fat32 label="System" create partition primary format quick fs=ntfs label="Windows"
When I checked for the alignment of the "Windows" partition, it said the offset was 41984kb. However, is it possible to have an align of zero like so?
create partition primary align=0
Then, I'd save an extra megabyte of space and have an offset of 40960, which is still divisible by 1024, making it still optimal for Windows 7?
