restore disk - server crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently had a major crash in the 2011 machine, and have now changed the 2 HDDs

    I had 1 disc (WD 160GB) for system drive, and a 1,5TB WD for the data.

    long story short, they both crashed (actually, the whole lenovo M58p is burned out, due to an electric fault)

    I have another m57p which I have now installed the 2 new drives to, a new WD500GB and a new WD 1,5TB.

    There was (luckily) also a 1,5TB USB drive with a total backup on, this is not damaged. I cannot restore from this, I tried both restore disc (on usb stick) install disc/restore. A new installation was the only thing that worked.

    Now - when I was going to restore the image from the WHS console, I can select the USB disc an also select both full restore and selected restore. But the target disc (1,5TB SATA disc) is greyed out? all other discs also....
