Hi. We have a sbs server 2002. The server requires a re-install. I have taken a backup of the system state and files to a external hard drive. The server as 2 scsi drives (mirror raid) setup and working fine. I have removed the old drives and install the new drives (the old drives is running out of space),  then i installed the OS and drivers. I then restore the system state (no over writing the current files) it says restores all ok. When I restart it get a blue screen with the error message inaccessible_boot_device. I have check the drives layout. The old drives has 2 partitions (C & D). I created the same on the new drives. Can you please let me know what has gone wrong?

Have done a check disk.. All seems ok. Do you think is is a driver problem or a hardware issue?

After Checking, I have found that the SCSI drivers have not been installed. I could boot up and load windows ok before the restore but in the device mg is doesn't have the drivers for the SCSI controller. So when I do the restore it can not locate the drivers and so fails to load windows correctly. Would you agree?

Yes I have the drives now. When restoring the DC should I Install AD and DNS ETC?? Or should I just do the system state restore? Please remember this is a SBS server 2000.
