just divide by the start lba by the number of sectors in 1MiB (2048 if 512
byte sectors) and the reminder is zero if aligned.

you use properties to see the starting lba.

i have system reserved partition on both ssd (w10 and w7)
i clicked prorerties on the first partition (the reserved zone) on both ssd
and the starting lba is 2048 and clust size are 4096 bytes

hi
but
quote and the starting lba is 2048 and clust size are 4096 bytes

2048/4096 is not zero , is 0.5 or if i divide 4096/2028 i get 2

might you please exaplain it please?

1048576/4096 = 256 so you'd div by 256
1048576/512 = 2048 so for those you div by 2048

After the divide is done there should be a remainder of 0, as in the
examples below. This means that the partition is aligned correctly.
