I have an old Server 2003 web server running IIS 6.  I need to move this server and all of its applications to a new web server running Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7.  I've already got the new server up and running with IIS 7 installed as well as all required features.  I made the same drive (Letter E:) that the old server had for the actual storage housing the web server folders and literally copied and pasted all of the data onto this drive so the structure and web.configs as well as the configuration.asp pages are the same.  However, I get the attached error (see screenshot) when I try to browse to this website from IIS 7 by name or by IP on the new server.  Can anyone help me decipher this?
