Jumper setting for AF disc under XP with multiple partitions

I just bought a WD20EARX drive with AF. I've been reading about this and I can't seem to find an answer on the following:

 

I want to use the drive as primary drive with 2 partitions (one for the OS and the other for data).

I'm using Windows XP and will be using the WD align tool.

 

Do I need to have the jumper on 7-8 or not? From what I read, this jumper setting is for a single partition under XP, but it doesn't say what to do with multiple partitions under XP.

 

Can anyone help me out?

 

Thanks and regards,

Ivan

Re: Jumper setting for AF disc under XP with multiple partitions

You need to run the WD Align, the jumper only works if you are using one single partition
