Ghost restore image - pops up new hardware found - generic volume.

If I make a ghost backup of my windows 2000 server, when I restore to
the exact same server and reboot it gives me the new hardware found
message about a generic volume.

I dont understand how because the server was perfectly happy before so
the ghost image should contain all hardware details.

Is there any way to disable this so this message does not appear?

Once I OK the message and reboot it goes away but I need a clean image
to be able to rollout.

Yeh I have.

I think it is more of a Windows problem though. Why does it keep
thinking it needs to set up a generic volume?

I tried disabling this - bad idea it wont boot after this. BSOD with
inaccessible boot device....

I guess I'd lean the other way since as you said "the server was perfectly
happy before so the ghost image"

I would think that it's a ghost problem... and I would look at how it
handles the disk signature side of things.
