Using a recovery disk on new hardware

I have a current backup and recovery disk created from a system using the backup utility in XP.  The hardware failed on that system so I thought I would try to recover onto new hardware.  It restored onto the new hardware but as I expected I am having some device issues.  Namely I cannot get the CD to work so I can load the proper network drivers etc.  I do not want to spend hours trying to do something that is never going to work?   Is it even possible to do what I am trying to do?

yeah, if you were able to get it to boot you've passed the biggest hurdle. look in device manager and find the cdroms, right click on it and uninstall. Then reboot, that should prompt XP to reinstall the correct cdrom drivers.

Thanks that sort of was it - I think because the old system had several mapped drives - the CD actually worked it would just listed as G - not D as I expected.  Re-labled it via disk management and we a moving forward.
