OK, I was being careless and formatted an SSD under XP. I then installed Windows 7 Pro 64. My offset is 63. I know I am not aligned. Any method of alignment test says I am not, and I don't want to burn up my SSD. My question is can I re-align without re-installing Windows 7? I have a bunch of stuff transferred/installed/licensed and I don't want to do a clean install. Will the following work: 1. Run Norton Ghost and get a disk image. 2. Re-format the SSD under another Win7 computer and format with correct offset. 3. Restore backup image to correctly aligned SSD. Any thoughts on that? I really messed this up. Thanks for any thoughts.
