Clone DL360 G1 to G2 smart array Problem?

How can I move my Windows 2k server installation from a DL360 G1 to a DL360 G2?

I tried with sysprep and a image made with powerquest driveImage but the G2 is not able to boot after restoring the image to it. Then I tried to start the recovery console on the G2 but "no Harddisks present Error" occurs.

Re: Clone DL360 G1 to G2 smart array Problem?

If you are using the integrated array controllers of the G1 and the G2 it is probably a problem of different Smart array generations.
They need different drivers (G1:cpqarry2.sys, the driver for the 4xx generation; G2:cpqcissm.sys, the driver for the 5xx generation).
On WinNT 4.0 I added the driver for the other array controller on the source machine and cloned after this with pqdi.
The result was: 2 machines running, even if they complained about the not existing other array controller.
(and then I disabled the unused driver) .
May be this works with F2M too, may be it is more complex.

Thanks for the tip. I allready did it by using Sysprep 1.1 and integrating the other array-driver in the sysprep process like described on a microsoft knowledge-base article. was working fine.
