Some quick research:

As Alex Kuretz so thoroughly points out, Advanced Format Drives can not be used as System/Primary/OS drives in WHS v1. So, when my WHS v1 OS drive fails (and it will), who makes 1TB or larger drives these days with 512byte sectors?

Yours is a good reference for those willing to fiddle, ......................

If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

Thank you Joe,
So to be clear, TechVet's article indicates that the jumpered method can't be used for OS drives, but thank you for clarifying that I can still use the realign method after the OS is installed on the drive. Two caveats here though:
1) you must have a successfull installation of WHS v1 OS onto the Advanced Format drive (so far 8 failed attempts) and
2) a willingness to go through the extra step of removing the drive, finding the gear/software and running the align program.
In this case, (1) wasn't achieved, thus (2) can't be attempted (even if I had the inclination).
Yours is a good reference for those willing to fiddle, but where the HP recommendation not to use Advanced Format drives for OS drives (at least), my question still stands: what 512byte sector drives remain on the market?
