did a cd based image of old dell server - non safe universal restore - using the version before Build 8206, server 2003 std fully patched - just a simple member server - dual prob with a 3 drive raid 5 - single container that has the os, data, etc. image completes fine. target server is a brand new dell t300 with a raid 1. retore to target (universal restore safe) completes just fine. remove the cd, restart, completes post, starts winedows server 2003 screen and then a one second flash of a bsod, not readable and then it starts to reboot over and over. image and restore were over a network - old server has usb 1so a backup would take ~14 hours. besides trying a new version is there something I should look at, I don't have much to go on other than its some sort of hardware issue I assume. to me this is acronis 1+1, its what I got the software to do. Thanks a ton, I will buy you all drinks when you come out my way!
