This is an odd one, but please bear with me. I need to upgrade a system from Windows 2000 SP-3 to Windows XP. It's not just an OS upgrade though - it's also a Hardware upgrade - New box, Sata RAID, more ram etc. This system is used as a 'server' for a specialised piece of software - uses a MSSQL system, which has a heap of information and databases that would probably be a pain to move and set up from scratch.
I've gone so far as ghosting the original system to the new hard drives (Single drives, no RAID), Repairing Windows 2000, Upgrading to XP - but some services don't want to start and parts of the system don't work properly.
Is there an 'easier' way of transferring the entire setup from one system to another? ie. by way of a program on the market? Or do I have to somehow build system from scratch, and import all the databases - which is time consuming?
Thanks for your help in advance :)
