So I have a DC running Server 2008 R2 on a HP server.
- I take a full back up using DPM 2010.
- Then restore the BMR image to the network
- copy that to a USB drive
- boot a laptop using the Serer 2008 R2 install media and with the USB drive plugged in.
- choose to repair and restore the image
The image restores fine and when the machine reboots I get a 0x0000007B BSOD. I'm guessing that this is because I've shifted the image from server to laptop.
I'm trying out a scenario where the office is unavailable and I have our offsite backups. I want to quickly set up a small recovery using several laptops so a couple of staff can deal with customers while we recover the servers properly.
Am I barking up the wrong tree with this BMR recovery? But even if I install Server 2008 and then restore system state of the DC surely I'll hit the same driver errors? Argh help!
