  • newb -> win2k3 server clone from one comp to another?

    I am a complete newb. (well, not a computer newb... just a windows newb).
    Anyway, a friend of mine has asked me to clone his win2k3 server from the current machine (a laptop) to a used dell 1U server he bought. I've cloned other systems before and it was quite easy, but I've been reading on google that windows is not that easy due to HAL.

    Can anyone guide me through the steps I need to take to do this (remembering that the target hardware is not the same as the source hardware)?

    Thanks!

    Personally I would forget it and do a clean install. Trying to clone and then fix the hardware compatibility problems is just not worth the time you will spend on it. Clean install with the correct drivers will give you a cleaner and more stable system.
