Windows 7: what Partition size to enter to align regular hard drive.

The 1st partition has an offset of 1024 KB which is right, only the first partition offset matters.

Now you have to check Disk 0 and Disk 1

Do them 1 at a time, Disk 0 looks like it has a system reserved partition, so only it`s offset matters.

Personally I don`t use Logical Partitions, only Primary.
