  • Restore using System State

    Hi
    I was trying to restore my SBS 2003 using System State, after that my server didnít boot up.
    Is that able to restore my AD using System restore? (In same hardware)
    How can I restore using system state? Should I make domain first (like previously) before I restore sustem state?

    Pls help me
    Thanks

    Re: Restore using System State

    Install Windows 2003 (CD1) from SBS.
    Stop the integrated install after CD1 and check your drivers and your disk partitions. Currently you have Win 2003 server without domain.
    Now restore your system state and reboot. You should now have a Domain Controller with your previous AD.
    Continue to install the rest of SBS and get it up to date with SPs and patches.
    Restore the rest of your data!
    TIA

      Thanks your Reply
      I tried same thing. But I cant boot up. it can come to windows logo and restart immediately. also I didn't remove all partition and just formatted C drive.
      After That, I repaired windows using Installation CD (in blue Screen, After press F8 and press R). But Still same problem I am getting.

      Thanks

        You formatted the C drive as in you removed/deleted the C Partition on your SBS server (but left the other partitions alone)? Is that correct?
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

          Also check that the C partition you now have is active - I just got bitten by that one. For some reason, the partition tool did not create the boot/system partition as active.
          TIA
