Using True Image, I have made an image of a server, and I am trying to restore the image to another server. They have different hardware. I did not install any Acronis software on the machine to be imaged before the image was made. The new hardware stops just a few seconds into the booting progress where it usually says "Loading Windows 2003 Server... Please wait", where you also can press F8. The screen shows a white progress bar which is full or almost full, as I remember it. However, there is no text. It freezes at this point and does not change afterwards (at least for 30 minutes). As I remember it, the crash point is where it loads the NTFS drivers, kernel etc. Therefore, I do not see that it could be caused by any device drivers. This also happens when I restore without universal restore. This also happens on other hardware.
