Can I restore and Windows Server 2008 built in image backup from one server to a different hardware? Is that possible?

I have a PowerEdge T710 and I want to restore to T300.


Yes, you can do this, up to a point. This article tells you how. Note particularly the need to install drivers for the target system, and under Troubleshooting, how to tell the system to re-detect the HAL.

Also useful, a simpler guide to bare-metal restore on Windows 2008 server here.

Good luck!
