Just a thought, but can't you use SYSPREP to remove system dependant stuff like that?

I'm trying to clone a system from one server to another... But they have

I swear I've done it before...

I ghosted the system partition to a file on an IDE drive.  Then I
created the appropriate RAID config on the new machine and restored the
image.

I can get Win2K to boot off the CD, or off of a NTLDR boot floppy.  But
windows complains of inaccessible boot device (because of the different
drivers...)

Does anyone know if this will work:
Load the new raid drivers on the old machine (right click on the INF
file and hit install.)

Then ghost and restore to the new machine...

I just don't want to come in tonight for two hours of ghosting fun, only
to find it doesn't work...
