The blue area is empty space so that shouldn't matter - but yes, you
may be onto something with the idea that a badly placed bad block is
throwing things off.

The interesting kernel messages would be the ones above those modprobe
errors, but are probably hard to capture?

If you tell us the addresses of the first 10-or-so bad blocks, we
could set up a laptop in the same way and try to reproduce. You can do
this by booting with the game-key-up cheat code
(http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Cheat_codes) and then using the arrow keys
to move to the first red block. When you get there it will say
something like "28f Marked bad in Bad Block Table". 28f is the
address. Then collect addresses of the next 9.
