And just to add,

I did the very same thing with Win/Exchange 2000, and everything was ok. I
installed the new servers (windows adv server-member server and exchange
enterprise in disaster recovery mode), added SPs and hot fixes I had on
old installation and restored databases from a tape. If you can't mount
stores, check the app log in event viewer and check MS TechNet site
or The solution should be eseutil or isinteg, that is
try to recover/repair databases and run IS integrity check. It could take
time, but in the end it should work.
