Hi,

What are the steps to recover Exchange 2007 server and Windows Server 2008 R2 when entire hard disk is failed?

I have a bare metal backup of Exchange and Windows Server to restore but not sure how to do this.

You want to recover Exchange or the server?. With the bare metal backup you can recover the server. Please elaborate the environment. Let us know the backup tools and the server was a VM or physical server.

If you want to recover Exchange then you can create a new server with the OS which was earlier and then install exchange 2007 with the recovery switch. Please check the below link from http://technet.microsoft.com/ and http://www.msexchange.org

As you already have backup of Exchange, you have to restore your Exchange database using Windows Server Backup. Check this thread for complete procedure to restore Exchange from backup.
