Restore to diff. hardware - Acronis TI Server help

Ok, I'm trying to restore an SBS 2003 server installation to different hardware using Acronis TI Server 9.1 w/Universal Restore and it's not working out for me. I'm going from a Gateway E-9510 to a Dell PE 2950. I restored the image to the new hardware, did a repair install of windows (loaded my 3rd party drivers) - and now it's just in a restart loop. I get to the windows screen and it auto-restarts. What's the deal? Help is appreciated.

- Note: this is my first attempt at doing this. So it's quite possible I could have missed something.

Are you going from a single processor/single core to the dual core in the Dell?  If so, you may be having a problem with switching to the different HAL needed for the dual core Dell.

Actually it turns out that (according to Acronis tech support) this is sometimes an issue when creating boot disks with Universal Restore. They sent me over a "special" ISO to burn a new boot disk and it worked like a charm this time.
