    is there some kind of trick where you can add drivers to a working
    windows installation so that if you were to just take those hard disks and
    put them in a newer machine it would boot up and work?

    I made a ghost image of one of the disks in my working exchange server and
    then put the ghosted sata drive in a brand new dell poweredge 1900 and like
    i expected it just reboots repeatedly.

    Is there some magic way to add drivers for the perc sas raid controller
    before i move the image over so that the boot loader is able to find the
    windows installation? or am I dreaming in teletubbies land?

  2. You can inject drivers, but will be hard to covers alls..
    do you have perc raid ?
    You may install dell drivers and make again your ghost
