Here's one I have done in the past.
Use psexec, mapped drives, whatever to gain access to the machine while
running. rename ntldr to something else - next time the machine shuts
down, it won't come up again.

User screams, brings in machine for maint

Take out hard drive (and I mean take it out, physically remove it and
replace it with a new hard drive)

Clone old hard drive to new

Repair ntldr, return machine to user and tell him openly you "had to"
replace the hard drive - the old one was faulty - but you managed to
recover all his data; can he check he hasn't lost anything?

User goes away happy, you have the original drive for chain of evidence
purposes, and can image as many copies as you like.

Is there possibility such could be explained in court, or perhaps md5 hash of his files(not the disk image) taken while online and then compared to a virtual image of sorts.
