    Hello,

    I want to run Microsoft diskpart.exe on a hard disk in a system that does not have Windows 2003 installed to align the partitions. Before arriving to the location with the system I tried creating a boot floppy and copied diskpart.exe to the floppy and booted to DOS. But diskpart claims it cannot be run in DOS mode. Some additional info is:

    1. Do not want to download non-MS media from the Internet
    2. No access to another system to temporarily install the hard disk.
    3. I do have 2003 installer media with me.

    Can disk alignment and partitioning be done with minimal tools?
