Hardware Raid and Universal Restore

Some of you old hands at this can probably pull this off in your sleep, but it's bugging the heck out of me!


I have a machine running Windows Server 2003 that is about ten years old. I want to move this to a new machine.

I bought an Intel Server Board S3000AH because all the Server 2003 drivers are available on their website although I also have a clean install of the OS on the new machine.

I've downloaded and unpacked all the drivers from Intel's site and placed them on a flash disk.

Using a bootable WIN/PE disk, I restored the TIB from the old machine, then rebooted with Universal Restore.

Universal Restore gets 55% of the way through and tells me it needs intervention and complains that it can't find

pci ven_8086&dev_27c3&subsys_348e8086&rev_01

A Google search identifies it as a RAID driver.

There is a software driver on the flash drive, but the hardware has a hardware RAID enable in setup.

Needless to say, the new configuration won't boot.

What am I doing wrong?

Hello Ed,

Thank you for your posting! I'd suggest starting with the following threads  recovery of RAID general how-to guide

What product is used for migration? Please note, Acronis True Image officially supports only Workstation operating systems. Other operating systems can be backed up using a sector-by-sector approach, but they may become unbootable after recovery.
