I have all the data, email, applications etc running nicely on a new server running SBS2011.
I have been following the very well written migration guide at this link:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/A_4234-Migrate-Small-Business-Server-2003-to-Small-Business-Server-2011.html

I have not completed: steps 13-15
step 13 Uninstall Exchange 2003 from the SBS2003 server
step 14: Check the transfer of the 5 FSMO Roles to SBS2011
step 15: DCpromo SBS2003 so it is no longer a Domain controller

The problem is that my outgoing Dell 1800 SBS2003 server now blue screens with a hardware malfunction (parity check/Memory parity error)

So my question is, do I really need to get this old server fixed to complete the remaining steps?
