Moved internal intranet site in IIS 7 not working correctly

Hello
I have a internal intranet site that i am transferring from 1 server to another. I have setup the site in IIS7, copied over the data, set the directory location, set the bindings to the same host header, and set the authentication the same. I am using my host file on my machine to point the site name to the IP to access it but I am getting a 404 error when i try to connect to the new site. If I turn on the old site on the old server in IIS i can connect to the site ok on the old server. I have no DNS entry in our active directory domain to point to the site at this time. On the new server I cannot connect to the site in IIS.
Does anyone have any ideas beyond this?
Thank you.

Back up the site from IIS on the old server, move the data to the new server in the same location, then restore the IIS config to the new server.

Thank you very much. I was able to copy over the applicationhost.config file from \windows\system32\inetsrv\config to the same location on our new server and settings for the site worked.
