I am having a problem doing a system state restore of a server. After doing a full backup of the server last Friday evening we updated some firmware and other devices with latest firmware. Well the unthinkable happened(yeah stuff like this never happens lol) and the server had an issue with the raid array Sunday evening/Monday morning before another System State backup could take place. We have attempted to rebuild the server with the same version of windows server and attempt to do a system restore of the server and it blue screens. We suspect that the firmware updates we did caused the server failure and since we did the updates after the system state backup that restoring the system state to a pre update state is causing the machine to blue screen. Since the server is end of life I am on a fact finding misson as I am migrating the server roles to other servers. Anyones thoughts on why this happened are welcome.
