Redeploying CRM on seperate server in the same Domain

I'm reinstalling CRM on a different server in the same Domain.  The following are the steps I have taken.  Created two new databases on the other server.  Backed up the MSCRM and the Metabase from the live and restored them to the test server.  Then I have used CRM redeployment wizard, I then go ahead and try to install CRM when I select to use existing database I get the following error.  "The existing databases are not compatible with this installation of CRM".

Can anyone tell me how to get around this or advise me the best way to get a test system setup on the same domain so that I can use it to train the users?

I've solved the problem it now installs it properly, I think it migh have been something to do with the database, I restored them again and it is fine.
