Hi,

I try to restore a backup of sbs2011 originaly VmWare hosted on a new server Dell.

I have a blue screen/reboot after loading CLASSNPN.sys (of something like).

What is the best practice for this operation ?

There is a way to repair the list of drivers usually created during the installation?

If you are unable to boot into normal Windows mode to perform the below steps, you may need to run the below steps through Windows Safe Mode. Additionally, you could try loading the last known good configuration.

If you cannot get into Normal or Windows Safe Mode restore system registry settings through the recovery console

Open system restore
Type: restore/rstrui
Press enter

Use VMware's vCenter Converter Standalone to move your old system to the new one. After that you probably need to rerun the different wizards in your server so things get properly setup for the new environment:

@aadi369 : Thank you for your answer.

 System restore can not work because Windows has never worked on this machine.

Do you think that Acronis could do the trick?

The best way is to make a clean install on new server and use option Migration even for SBS2011 to SBS2011.

It does the job but very long and requires the change of the server name.

Note : Microsoft allocates 21 days to finish the migration.
