Request: improve the disk layout when writing to HDD - uls4 - 01-24-2021

Hi, I have a request for the current disk layout when installing Ventoy. 
Is it possible to add an option to select an arbitrary initial part of LBA PART 1 when writing Ventoy to leave unallocated space with bad sectors at the beginning of the external hard drive?
Or the sector ranges option (start LBA — end LBA) to select an undamaged location in the middle of the hard drive? 

Illustration of the idea:

Sorry for my English translation.
Thanks.

NO.
Ventoy doesn't support this. Only reserved space at the end of the disk supported.
