I forgot some step? Thanks in advance GarenMember May 21, 2010 at 12:16 pm #311978 Re: system state restore You added an extra step. Don’t DCPROMO just restore the System State. This is an unsupported restore method either way. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/249694 Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
