Oh thx for the reply. I will check the offset with this command. If it is the default offset it would mean that a lvm only disk is aligned by default. Thx for help

By default LVM uses an offset of 192k, see:

# vgs -o +pe_start
  VG         #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize VFree 1st PE
  VolGroup00   1   1   0 wz--n- 8,78G    0  192,00K
