  • SBS 2003 Migration to new hardware simple question

    I have migrated a number of different clients to new hardware on SBS 2003 and I have never run into this problem before. I am sure it is really simple, but if someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

    I have the operating system installed, the server is joined to the domain and has been successfully promoted to a domain controller. What I can't figure out is how to resume the SBS setup. On all other installs I have had an icon on the desktop that has said something like 'continue setup'. With this install I did not get that - instead when I booted the machine for the first time after text mode setup it gave a dialogue box to enter Disk 1 to continue setup, but because I had to join it to the domain and reboot I never saw that dialogue box again.

    How do I get SBS to properly resume the setup?

    Thanks a bunch for your help!

    Are you following the instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884453? What happens when you insert Disc 1 and run the setup from there?

      Yes that is the exact article I am following. When I run setup from the disk instead of going through the SBS continuation it actually starts a new setup and gives me an option to upgrade or to do a new install.

      I have never seen it react that way so I am really reluctant to do an upgrade.

        Go ahead and upgrade. You are upgrading a standard (more or less) Windows server 2003 installation, which is a fully supported scenario.

          I was planning on do that today just to get things moving. I will let you know how it goes.
