    Is this really true? WD ships their EARS drives with an alignment tool
    that as far as I can understand, moves the partition so
    it's aligned to 4KiB:

    So an XP fresh install (including letting XP partition the drive) will be
    misaligned, but if you clone xp onto a properly aligned partition (or run
    the tool and let it move the partition), it'll be ok. So saying that XP
    "depends" on traditional partition layout might be a bit of a streth?
