Use SRD

Hi,
the best way to recover your Server would be just to boot it from the Symantec Recovery Disc that shipped with your copy of BESR 8.5.1 (You can also download it from https://fileconnect.symantec.com/ after entering your serial no.
If you booted the machine from this disc, you can plug in your external HDD and go to "Recover my PC", tell him where to find the image (on the external HDD) and start  the restore.

All the best from Berlin/Germany,
