I have been a lurker here for quite some time and have gotten a lot of help with my XP systems but now need some newbie advice for my Server 2003 system. The system board died on my old Dell running Server 2003 standard. I knew the machine was starting to have problems and was able to find a new Dell machine at a great price but it came with no OS. I have an image of the drive running the OS on the old machine, but obviously the hardware is too different to just copy it to the new machine and boot it up. I have an OEM reinstall disk for the old machine (no help there). The installed system has 8 users, some thin and some thick workstations, and a ton of installed software, printers, etc. I am really not looking forward to rebuilding the system from scratch. My question is this: Is it possible to copy the drive image to the new box and then do a repair install over it and keep all my settings, etc. If so which install disk do I create for the purpose (retail, OEM, etc.) and are there any special procedures I need to do to make it work? Thanks in advance for any help...I'm very comfortable with XP but a newbie to the Server stuff.
