Aligning disk for Windows XP

Hello,

I have created a VM, and installed Windows XP SP2 (32bit) on it. I then added a 2nd hard disk, and I am trying to properly align the 2nd disk. I run this command

create partition primary align=64

However, I am getting this message

The arguments you specified for this command are not valid.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Please help. Thanks

You can use the diskpar (not diskpart) command from Windows 2000.
