On the Hp server i install server 2003 and backup exec 12 and restored data from the tape of the sbs03. it seemed to work but i could not bootup windows...what do i need to do differnet to restore?

You probably need to do a repair install of SBS since the hardware is too different.

That should not affect your programs in general.

I hope this helps !

I did the F8 domain controller restore
I'm assuming this is a test environment.....  Like SysExpert mentioned, you will need to do a repair install for your OS as your disk controller drivers, etc. etc. have been overwritten during the system state restore.

It may or may not work, but it's a start.  Also check out this article:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/263532
