I'm trying to capture an image of this laptop, and it consistently fails (at 54%) with a CRC error. My first thought is to put the HDD in a USB enclosure and scandisk it from my workstation. IIRC, the bad-sector information is stored in the partition information (i.e. it's not OS-dependent), and the capture will no longer try to read those bad sectors when I stick the drive back in the laptop.
(I'd just boot up the drive and scan it on its own laptop, but it's already sysprepped and I'm looking for the lazy way out).
Anyway, is this a good plan, or am I wasting time, and the capture is just going to fail again at 54%?
