I just got my first Series3. It was a broken, lifetimed unit from ebay. After replacing the blown caps to get it running, and finding an image (seller had wiped the hard drive (I can understand data privacy concerns to a point, but wiping a dvr drive...SRSLY?)) I found it to have bootstrap partitions of single sector (1 block, 512 byte) size, which will give me misaligned writes if I expand to a 4k sector based disk.
I don't yet know if this issue was created when I restored the backup image, or if this issue was created when the backup image was created. Any ideas if I will be able to fix this when expanding to a new drive, or if I need to start off with a different source image?
