Server 2012 R2 Bare-Metal recovery using older system installation disk

Recommended Posts

I have a simple question.

Is it possible to restore newer system using older restore system wizard?


I have done bare metal backup of win2k12r2 standard server using dpm 2012 r2.

I'd like to test recovery process of bare metal recovery.

I have MsDaRT 6.5 available via PXE on the network. MsDaRT 6.5 is older "system" than win2k12r2 and whenever I try to point image location to shared folder on my dpm server I get "an internal error occurred while enumerating backup sets" error. When I try to boot my VM which I'd like to do bare-metal restore using win2k12r2 installation disk it does not detect my network card so if it is possible I'd like to use MsDaRT I already have set up.


So again. Is it possible to restore newer system using older backup/restore tool?
