I am enabling raid after the restore.
As far as changing the drivers.....I created a custom SRD and added the drivers associated with the new system to the SRD, ran the recovery, still had the same issues. Only loops when I enable the embedded raid (HP ML320g5 are the servers I'm migrating my current HP servers over to) ...when I disable embedded raid....the servers are no problem.
not clear on your term "install in place" ???
