Restore to different hardware

I am involved in planning for off-site disaster recovery. Our current production servers are 3000s, 1600s, ML530s, DL380s and DL360s with SMART 2DH and 3200 RAID Controllers. The servers provided at the hot site are ML570s with 5300 RAID Controllers. I'm looking for advice on the steps should I take to make the restore successful, given the different hardware/RAID controllers. I could install the 5300 drivers on the existing servers so they would be on the backup. Once restored it should come up. I am not sure of the extent of the remaining hardware differences between the servers. Are there certain registry keys I can remove during the restore or replace immediately after the restore? Any ideas on how to approach this are appreciated.
