I am trying to use the Windows Server Back-Up utility and always get a success message when attempting to restore (in a test environment).

The issue is that when restarting, all seems well, then a quick blue screen and finally, I get the option to start windows normally, or launch start-up repair. Well, I've tried both to no avail......

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thank you

It's not guaranteed to work am afraid. A lot of the times restoring on different hardware just does not work, especially when you deal with different storage drivers.
That's one of the things why virtualization is important.

It can help to make a backup of a  sysprep'ed source machine.

Let me amplify that a bit: it's unsupported [smile]

I agree.  The drivers are causing the problem.

You could try a p2v migration and then create/restore a backup. Or start in recovery mode and remove/update the storage drivers.
