    Backup Exec System recovery offers 60 day full functional trial, you can take a image of the whole server with it, when you downlaod the trial, make sure to downlaod the SRD ISO too, that will allow you to boot off with a cd on your new or existing server and restore the image.
    One thing to do is, when you have downloaded the SRD (System recovery disc), boot your server with it to verify whether it recognizesy your raid card drivers and boots properly ;
    you can also check for drivers from within the BESR console after installin it.

    Image it to a ext-usb storage .
