progress so far:
I have a full backup, and sys state from my original server
On the new server (IBM with RAID) I have installed the first stage ie server install
I then did a full restore of C: drive and it could not see the SATA RAID
I used F6 to load drivers, went to command console and copied the SATA drives to the root of C and did a FixBoot
I then started it up OK but had no domian stuff
I then did a restore of SYS STATE and even with the same procedures as before I can not restart. It can see the drive and starts to load but then it is just a blank screen. Last known good and safe mode do not work.
If I do a full install of SBS 2003 can I then do a restore of SYS State and get my AD back or will it stuff up my booting agian
