Migrate from W2K8SBS to another W2K8SBS

Hi I was wondering if anyone has any experience in migrating one Windows 2008 SBS to another Windows 2008 SBS reason being the current Windows 2008 SBS is hardware is going to go down soon and we are going to change hardware.

The SBS Server version is Windows Server Standard FE SP2 running Exchange 2007

64Bit.

Microsoft has specific documentation for doing so:

Or you can purchase a migration kit with support from

However personally I would install the free version of Hyper-V on the new server
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/hyper-v-server/default.aspx
and use Microsoft's Disk2VHD to convert the existing server to a virtual server, which requires no migration.  Very simple, doesn't affect the original server, and much faster.
