I know you've seen this, because it was in answer to your question. Re read it, and pay attention this time. All the crap you read in the link you posted is basically bogus, and was outdated before the blog was written . All that alignment crap has been taken care of automatically since all the partitioning tools for Linux were rewritten to do so. You can use a regular DOS partition table, rather than a GUID partition table. GUID is one alternative for drives having greater than 2 TB capacity. Your SSD certainly isn't in that category. http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,102658.msg875792.html#msg875792
While not a SSD drive, note that using a DOS partition table on a 2 TB Green hard drive, without any special attention paid to alignment, the first sector of the first partition is automatically placed in correct alignment for the 4 KB sector size, using sector 2048 as its beginning.[root@fatman ~]# fdisk -l /dev/sdc

This is now the default used for partitioning all hard drives of all sizes, for the sake of simplicity and consistency. While not needed for most drives, it does no harm where it's not strictly required, and for those drives that absolutely require it, it is the default, so no extra precautions or procedures are required.
The legacy grub that PCLinuxOS uses works just fine with drives partitioned in this manner. There is no need to use grub2, which is still under development, and according to its own developers, not yet ready for use on production systems.
