I need to convert a physical hard drive as fast as possible to a vhdx and I need it to work on the first attempt.

It's a 420GB WD Raptor SATA-3

Any suggestions?

Or is it faster to copy files from one to a new vhdx on the new server?

if it isn't a boot drive, it could be faster to just create a vhdx in disk manager, mount and format it, and copy over
