Hi, Here's the situation, We have a SBS 2003 server which is rather old and decrepit so we would like to use Acronis True Image Server 9.1 to transfer it to a new Dell PowerEdge 1950. Would I be correct in assuming that the Acronis Universal Restore feature is required to transfer to such different hardware as others have said that it is not required. If I use the True Image bootable rescue CD I can browse the external hard drive containing the images but do not have the option to restore to the RAID 5 array in the PE 1950. Would it be worth installing Windows and Acronis on the new Dell and then trying to restore the backup from within Windows. (common sense says to me that you can't restore to the same hard drive you're running Windows off) Hope this makes sense and thanks in advance for all replies.
