troubleshooting Question

Just did restore and can't boot...

Windows Server 2003

We had a server go down, so we were hoping to make use of a Workstation and restore the server image on that workstation until we can get another server.  I installed Windows 2003 Server on the workstation, then restored the server's image on it, rebooted, and it gets caught in a rebooting loop.  So I disabled "automatic restart on system failure" and the error that it gets is:


STOP: 0x0000006B (0xc000007A, 0x00000008, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Basically, when booting, it gets to the Windows 2003 Server splash screen, then reboots itself.

Same thing happens trying to boot to any of the Safe Mode choices

I enabled boot logging and went into the Recovery Console and in the ntbtlog.txt the last driver to load is crcdisk.sys, then the first to fail is ACPI Uniprocessor PC.

I am thinking this is definitely because Windows is looking for some devices that were on the actual server that are not on this Workstation.  Is there anything I can do?

This is very urgent.  Thanks!
