Hi
Can someone recommend a product that can restore an operating system onto a server with different hardware? I am running a windows small business server.
Thanks

Hi,
Try Acronis True Image Enterprise Server
Also if your Hardware is not too different - you can pull out the Disks and plug them in the same way/order on your new hardware.
I've swapped two systems - where the processors & Ram have differered and have had no issues. Just run windows update once you have done that.

The key to pulling the disks and putting them in another system is that the other system has the same chipset on the mainboard.

I recommend cheap and effective solution: Paragon Drive Backup 9.0 Server Edition: www.drive-backup.com
It has Adaptive restore feature that allows migrating to new hardware. Adaptive Restore can be applied from WinPE2.0 based Recovery CD that increase your chances that no problem during migration would happen.
