I hate to keep bugging you guys but I want to get it right... New SSD.

1. Do I go to Disk Managment first to initalize the SSD then Diskpart to align?
2. Will I need to use the format option in diskpart while I'm doing the align=1024?
3. And when do I need to do the 100mb partition,OR is it necessary to have?

1. That you have to check. It may already be initialized.

2. Yes, absolutely. I have no idea why that does not show in your quote because it is in my original tutorial. It goes after the Create command and is: Format fs=ntfs quick

3. Copy the bootmgr to C and then you can forget about the 100MB partition. But that you have to do before you make the image of C.

Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD
