    Just purchased Paragon Partition Manager 11 Server Edition, and used the link inside my order confirmation to download the PAT 2.0 Recovery CD. Booted off the CD on a Windows 2003 Server box, and PAT says it won't work on servers. What's the deal? I looked around in Partition Manager 11 Server recovery CD for an option to align, and could not find any such option.

    Confused since this is clearly listed on the web site as a benefit of upgrading to version 11.

    I have a similar question: The recovery CD stops with the same msg. I have 3 boot partitions on a PC for testing purposes: W7-32bit, W7-64bit, W2008r2.

    Regards, Freddy
    I'm using (W7-64bit, Paragon HDM 2010 pro)

    Just a small addition:

    Meanwhile I tried the Windows version of PAT v2, and wondered that the latest version of Paragon Harddisk Manager 2010 pro (october 2010) obviously creates itself such oddly aligned partitions, at least on a USB key...

    HDM Pro doesn't have auto-alignment. The new HDM 11 Suite has. Pro version should be also updated soon.

    What do you mean by oddly aligned partitions?

    Thank's Mech_An for the announcement.

    Regarding "oddly aligned partition": Sorry my limited english. I called partitions as "odd" which have a suboptimal start position relative to the physical disk properties, as described in the PAT doc. But I didn't read all the details.
