As said....a clone is no different than moving the physical hard drive.

It might work, it might fail completely.
A 10 year old install of Server2003?
I'm predicting massive fail if connecting to any current hardware.

But, you might get lucky.

There are possibilities for making this happen, but it is NOT plug and play.

Macrium Reflect has a ReDeploy function that may work.

Or, Sysprep in WIndows.

But...when was the last time this Win2003 server was reinstalled? It might be time for a new install anyway.
