SBS 2011 Premium Crash

I have a Microsoft SBS 2011 premium network, with SBS 2011 running on a server and Windows Server 2008R2 running on a secondary server.  My SBS 2011 server crashed, but my 2008R2 server is still up and running.  I have all my data backed up, but I want to replace my hardware and reinstall SBS 2011.  Is that doable, or do I have to rebuild the 2008R2 server as well?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello there,
If you re-install SBS 2011 you will need to rejoin the Server 2008 R2 machine to the new domain (even if its the same name)
Just take the server off the domain and then once the new Domain Controller (on SBS 2011) is up and running, join the 2008 R2 server to the domain.
