Hi all, So here's my scenario. I've backed up my Win2k3 server, restored it to new hardware. For whatever reason, I can't get it to boot into Windows. It starts to boot, but it just hangs at the splash screen after a few minutes of disk activity. What makes it even more frustrating, is that I can even boot into Windows Safe Mode w/Networking and install all the drivers for the chipset etc. Any ideas on what's holding me back? The original server was a single, degraded RAID 1 drive with a single C: parition - a 36GB drive. I'm upgrading to a much faster machine running RAID 5 - 931.5GB on the partition. Help please!!! Oh - and to top it off - I've even successfully converted the backup image to a VM - both MS Virtual PC and VMWare server - both work flawlessly.
