Windows Server 2003 SBS, copy to new box

I have an old HP Server that is dying from old age, so I bought a new Dell Poweredge T110 to replace it. I made an image of the hard drive using Acronis and transferred everything over to the new Poweredge T110. To my delight, the OS booted up to the Windows pre-login screen  "Loading Network Connections" and all that, but right after loading network connections finishes, it simply blue screens to a IRQ NOT LESS THAN OR EQUAL and STOP 0X0000000A on the bottom

what might be causing this, is there a clever way to go about resolving this driver conflict or identifying what is causing the conflict so I can resolve and not have to start a fresh install of my server? Thanks for your input!

SBS generally will not restore to a different box if the Motherboard is different. Acronis has an SBS specific backup tool, as well as a server backup tool with a Universal restore option, that allow you to restore to different hardware. I haven't seen it work otherwise.

You could also virtualize SBS using disk2vhd and running hyper-V on your new server but it is not a supported scenario though it does work. You can also migrate to a new box.

Out of curiosity was your old server an OEM SBS license? It will not activate on the new server, and it will require re-activation.
