Thanks for any advise!
Technically no, if you need to check your hdd's for any problems before upgrading use a dos based hard drives suite.
Seagate,western digital and others have utitlity's where you can check, zero filled, and check the tempatures of the hard drives...
It will do more than windows scan disk half the time and save you from any potential nightmares...
