Really it is a matter of creating a checklist of all the steps you would have to take to go from zero to go for release to users.

Some of the things to think of:

Is it going to be a scratch built server? Or do you have one in place that you are attaching or restoring too?

Who is going to be doing the restore -- you? Joe the service desk guy hired two days ago? Some technical contractor? A DBA? (And at what level do you have to write instructions?)

How much can be done as prior planning?

The best way is to just walk through the whole process and take many notes. Or if you can do it, have someone else walk through from your instructions and see if it makes sense to them.
