Updating OSD WinPE boot images in SCCM to be 4k aware

I finally updated my winpe 3.0 boot images to be 4k aware as all our new machines have the new 512e drives in them. If you are using the 3.1 boot images, you are already set.  The process was actually really painless. Here are the directions I followed: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff794819.aspx and here are the hotfixes that you need to apply:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982018

After that, I rolled out my OSD image on a new machine, then ran a vbscript to make sure they were aligned properly.

You can get the vbscript as well as a few more details about the AFHD drives here:  http://dell-lab.posterous.com/is-your-os-partition-4k-aligned-a-simple-vbsc
