I used Diskpar.exe successfully a few months back, but when I try to run it now I just get a momentary flash... very short, can't see any text. Same result on all 5 computers I've tried. And, my "Diskpart" apparently doesn't have an "align" parameter, so that doesn't work either.
Any ideas of what to try next?
Have you read thread /thread/14108?tstart=0 Paragon Alignment Tool (PAT) ?
Always clone or take a full backup of an HDD/SSD before running anything like PAT.
Since you mentioned XP, you also may be interested in thread /thread/14145?tstart=30 Easy way to Enable AHCI on XP running in IDE mode . Note that first post is garbled so start reading at corrected second post.
Thanks for the response.
Seems I encountered PAT a couple of days too late.. :>)
I believe my rig is already running in AHCI mode... won't boot if other is selected.
