Earlier today, I tried to restore my Windows Server 2008 R2 server from a Windows Server backup file. The process it followed (which I had used in the past on Server 2003) was
- Do quick load of OS from CD
- Restore backup from external drive.
When I went to restore, I didn't see an option to restore entire system. I had to choose volumes, applications, system state etc. I chose system state and the restore completed; however the server bluescreened when it came back up.
My question is, when doing a restore in the way that I described above, do I need to first restore the C drive, then restore the system state?
Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
