  • Help regarding System restore on a new PC?

    I am using windows 2003 Domain controller, I have taken its system state data backup recently.
    Suddenly after that my whole OS is crashed.
    Now i have done fresh installation of Windows 2003, and now want to restore System State data on that.
    My question is this that how will i perform this, either i have to install AD with the same existing domain name first with DCpromo command and then to restore system state data or just after the fresh installation of OS i can restore the system state data directly instead of installing ADS first.
    Please help me regarding the recommended steps.

    You restore the server to the same configuration it had before, but you do not run DCPROMO:
    - partitioning
    - OS, SP, Patches, Programs

    Then, boot to AD restore mode and restore system state. Do not mark it authoritative.
