    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'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:
