I tried restoring a 2008 Server using tivoli fastback bmr. I went through the whole process
selecting Boot, C, E Drive and then click restore.
After the restore is complete, the target system requires a different mass storage driver, specifically a mass storage driver that is different from the driver on the recovered snapshot, I use the Any-to-Any HW Restore utility, but when i search for the installation windows it only finds : D\windows instead C:\windows
when i continue and reboot the machine, it wouldn't boot up because the windows installation is on D drive instead C drive. I found out that there is a 100MB system reserved was on C drive. Please advise?

Normally, that 100MB partition is not assigned a drive letter.It is usually labeled System or EFI.
Is this 2K8 or 2K8R2?

I'm using fastback tivoli storage manager to backup all servers in our environment. now i'm trying to restore one of the server"2K8R2" from the backup using IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Bare Machine Recovery¿ CD. but for some reason after restoring is complete, the next step is to select the windows installation, when i hit auto search>> i get D:\windows
that would prevent windows from booting up

You need to read pages 3, 4, and 5 of this which say you needed to install 2K8 on the drive before using Tivoli so that the system partition is created properly: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/tsmfbinf/v6/topic/com.ibm.tsm.fb.bmr.doc/b_bmr_userguide.pdf

you're the best. I installed Windows 2008 R2 on it, then ran the BMR CD. That actually fixed my issue. Thank you very much
