It shouldn't.

So the process of manually aligning it to 4096 is the same for GPT partition styles? GPT should contain three partitions by default, ESP, MSR, and Basic Data partition.

I can't really answer that question fully atm, maybe later after some more learning, but my ssd is set to GPT and it works fine and is aligned properly.

Paging File does not need to be disabled and is recommended.

Disk Defragmenter should not be disabled since it will not defrag a 0RPM disk (i.e. SSD) anyways. It will still defrag your HDDs.
Once again...

Your alignment is set to 4096? So you just followed the steps in the OP without creating the ESP and MSR partitions required for GPT?

Ok, will update, still adjusting everything. Thanks for your input, I appreciate it. wink.gif

I realized that a while ago that derangementer doesn't need to be disabled b/c windows automatically disables it for the SSD doh.gif

I did the alignment before when it was set at 1k (1024...default windows) and 4k(4096) and it didn't make the extra 100mb partition.

Well, you can do the alignment for newer HDD's and some of the optimizations. I think i'll go though later and label the ssd specific ones if you like. wink.gif

ya, that would be cool if we can really optimize HD like we can do with ssd now a days.
