Bare Metal Restore Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to do a bare metal restore to one of my laptops and I only got the option of restoring my machine to backups older than 5-15-2015. I can see all of my later backups in the dashboard. Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    According to my research, bare metal restore does not support on a different hardware configuration. But i am not sure it is the cause of this behavior.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Does this issue happen to all laptops or just this laptop?

    Have you ever changed the hardware of the problematic laptop?

    Please check if your WHS 2011 have the latest updates installed.

  •  As long as the motherboard hasn't changed, you can do a bare metal restore, I've done so a few times.
