    Hello All,
    I am trying to restore a exchange server 2003 on windows 2003 server without
    any service pack to a new hardware.
    i am follwing this article
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;249694
    I install the operating system and then i recover the system state back.
    Doing this i am getting a blue screen.
    Please let me know in case if i am missing something.

  2. Hello Omkar,

    Sounds that you are not using the same hardware and this results in a blue
    screen.

    Best regards

    Hello Guys,
    Thanks for Your reply,
    I figured out it was because i was using windows 2003 server cd without
    service pack level that was causing the blue screen on Restoring service
    pack, which was a cause of kernel and hal.dll mismatch.
    I was wondering if you have any article which will explore all possibilites
    and ways to recovering from a hardware or catastrophic failure.

    Thanks
