I am trying to clone a damaged disk and it seems to get to all but one bar left and never moves further. Has anyone ever successfully, or is it even possible to attempt to install the operating system on the new drive on top of what has been completed keeping as much data as possible?

The damaged disk is a Seagate, the new disk is a western digital.

Already ran chkdsk and if fixed what was bad, but I think this is a physical issue. It is stuck at like 99% and the Seagate's spinning although I don't hear any ticking and the led remains on with no flickering.

What kind of damage is? Bad blocks?
Installing OS over exisiting system is bad idea. Copy out data from this drive, you can slave it to a working system or connect it via a usb box.

Since you are trying to clone the drive to a new drive, and it only gets 99% complete indicates that it can't get past the bad block. If that one percent that can't be cloned holds the OS files then you will not be able to boot from the new drive once it is cloned because the crucial files are missing. I would just do a fresh OS install on the new drive, install the drivers, and applications you need then migrate the data from the bad drive to the new drive. It is always best to start a fresh install of the OS than trying to work with a crippled OS that was copied from the failing drive.

Have you tried using Acronis to make a backup image of the drive first? If you have an external hard drive or something to put it on, you could try doing a backup then restore from the backup to the new drive, instead of doing the clone. It may work better. You also should have an option in there to ignore read errors. No guarantee how good it will come out if the old drive is physically failing, but it may be worth a shot.
