It is my understanding that as far as backups go Active Directory is inseparably linked to System State.  System state also contains the registry, drives, etc.

So my question is... Is it possible to restore to a new system, with different hardware (or at least some key components like the RAID card switched out)?  What conflicts will this cause?  Is it feasible at all?
