once restore completes, the machine will not start ...
When I return to Directory Services Restore Mode, the installation date must have been reset and I can't log on, i.e. "yes", "no" & "cancel" all return to the logon screen.
My next strategy is to remove all the harddrives except for the O/S on the existing SBS machine and perform a complete back (rather than system state that I have tried so far). Note: cold back of system state is more successful than a warm back, which actually blue-screens and never starts.
