With two partition C,D 1TB and 600GB I had a full backup created with windows backup I sneered the windows 2k8 server standred 64bit with SP2
And went to repair then restore from back up I was able to see my backup click on it the I installed the drivers for my H700 integrated PERC controller the started the restore. It went through it ok I got the massage that it was successful and I need to restat when restart it goes as fare as the windows logo then it flash blue screen then restart and continue doing so.

On the old system ,was there a Dell diag partition by any chance?

If you were using the built in backup,it does not back up any partition other than ntfs ,and I've see weird things occur without that partition.

Thank you everyone that tried to help me.
Eventually I'm back in business.
I found out that the windows backup once happens you can't move it to other locations and if you dido you have to use (wbadmin recover catalog) witch then made my backup visible. Then because I change the server HDD from 146gb to 900gb when I tried to restore my system state I got a message stating that this system state backup is from a deferent machine and if I continue I might damage my server do you want to continue..?
After checking other forums witch all pointed not to do it with windows 2008 I did go a head with the restore and it succees. Every thing is working and active directory is back.
