Windows 7: Hard drive failing. Trying to replace. Restore failures.

Hard drive failing. Trying to replace. Restore failures.

Okay, I thought that I had it. Started having S.M.A.R.T. messages at boot. So, I figured that I could use a new hard drive. I followed the directions, created a backup to a clean, formatted USB flash drive. Successful backup. A rescue disk was also burned.

Took my brand new hard drive, connected it up. Inserted my rescue desk, connected my USB, and started the restore. 90 mins later, failure. "Error details: The operation failed due to device error encountered with either the source or the destination. If the source or destination volume is on a disk run CHKDSK /R on the source or destination volume, and then retry the operation. (0x8078012D). I did as suggested, no errors noted. 90 mins later. Repeat failure.

Any ideas? Cloning software?

You have a disk error. You have to fix that first as was suggested.

I think I messed up my Hard Drive, should I replace it?
Hey everyone, I think I might've goofed up my hard drive. My Sager NP5170 can not reboot Windows 7, and I can't figure out why. When I tried, it tried installing (not reinstalling) to the HDD, and now every time I turn it on it asks me to put in the information, then it's somewhat fine (screen...
