    I have taken an image using True Image Server 8 (build 937) of a Windows 2000 domain controller with a single SCSI hard drive and would like to restore it to a Dell PE2600 server with a Perc 4 on-board RAID controller. When I boot for the first time after restoring the image, I receive an 'unaccessable boot device' blue screen. I know that this is due to the fact that Windows can't boot to a device that it doesn't have the drivers for. My question is how I can add the driver to the new system so it can boot successfully. I have tried inserting the Windows 2000 Server to run through a in-place upgrade/repair but I don't get the option. I can get to the recovery console but I don't know how to install the Perc 4 driver. Can anyone lend a hand?

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Early in the setup, there is a screen where you can press F6 to install special drivers for storage devices. (At least there is with the Pro and Home versions, so I'd expect the same for 2000 Server.) Use that to provide the Perc 4 drivers.

    An upgrade in place is just a repair (reinstall) to the same folder as the original Windows installation.

    Good luck,
