Original server crashed, we buil d new client server with same name and ip address and with same OS and patch version. Post that we installed same NBU client version.
After installation we performed C:\ drive restore( completed successfully).
Post C:\ drive restore we executed system state restore that too completed successfully
After restore both ( C and system state) we rebooted the server but unfortunately server was not came UP, getting below error
Is hardware the same ? As the very same hardware ?
If the boot hardware isn't the same, Windows will fail to start, because device drivers doesn't match the hardware.
More guidance can the found in this tech note:
I also have to say my success rate of using this method is mixed.
