HAL for Any-To-Any-Hardware-Restore HPDL360G6 XEON P5540
I have a windows 2003 server hosting a complex application that I am trying to migrate on to new Hardware without having to reconfigure it.
The current server is an old 32bit HP Server and I am trying to restore an image of the current server from the backup to the new server which is a HP DL 360 G6 with a dual XEON P5540 CPU.
Of course after I restored the image to the new hardware the system crashes while trying to boot windows 2003 server since the new hardware is a completely different architecture as the old server.
My Server Back Software allows me to install a new HAL driver to fix this issue.
The options I am getting are:
ACPI Multiprocesor PC
ACPI UNIPROCESOR PC
Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC
MPS MULTIPROCESOR PC
MPS UNIPROCESOR PC
Standart PC non-ACPI
My quetion is, dos anybody know which HAL to install for a G6 DL360 with XEON E5540 CPU?

Hi Coral, Thank you, I still cant get my server to boot but at least I know my problem is not related to the HAL
Thanks for the feedback and the Points. : )
Did you try changing the Hard drive Mode in the BIOS?
How about Minimal hardware? Take out un-needed cards, and disable things in the BIOS, that are not needed for Bootup.
