   I have run into the same issue here. My team is responsible for over
400 servers, so having an ASR disk for each server is a little much.
What we have done is using RDP on our HP servers we have an image build
that will build a plain server in 20 minutes. The server has w2k3, sp1,
and the TSM client 5.3.2 already installed. Then it is just a matter of
restoring the systemroot, systemstate, and systemservices. After that is
done we reboot and the server should be back. I am looking at a product
called Cristie which they say does a bare metal restore.

Hi Tim,

Yes we've seen this problem with our HP servers. What we do is create
slipstream cd with windows 2003, sp1 and the nic card drivers on
course you may be using 2003 G2) We use a useful utility called nlite.
gui based and is freeware. Another way to get around this problem is
install the nic card drivers from the dos window that you get at the
option 1 for network or 2 for local backupset. The dos window is
when you get to this window.
