Re-Installation of WHS nad saved systems on my storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, after almost 1 year of running the WHS without any major problems (on rather old hardware) the inevitable happend: My system went dead!!

    I already have a new mobo with memory and even a new box. As my old CPU was Intel and my new one is AMD igues I have to reinstall the WHS.


    Is this assumption correct or should I just try to reboot with the distribution DVD ready in the drive  and see what happens?

    If I need to re-install, I plan to have exactly the same SATA config as on the old system. Will I be able to get at the old data/backups?

    What will I have to do in order to re-connect all my PC's and continue working without scratching all data and re-do everything??

    Thank you for ideas, cookbooks etc.


    ps: I am not too lazy to not RTFM!! I just wanted answers / tips form someone who did this already with  success !!
