System State Restore Problem

Ok so here is a quick rundown.

We have restored the entire C: (System) and (Data) drive from one server to another using CA ARCserve. The server we are restoring to is a HP DL380 G3, the backup was taken froma DL380 G4. This iserver is a Windows 2003 DC.

This restore goes off without a hitch. We then do a restore of the System State using NT Backup. After the reeboot the server comes back online very slowly. When we try to log in the server freezes up. We have tried in safe mode but the same things happends. We can ping the server while this happends and we can not use TS to connect to it. This has happened twice now and we are not sure why this is happening and can not even get a look at the event log due to the fact we cant log in (have also tried viewing the event log from another PC with no luck).

I will award the points to anyone who an even give me a push in the right direction!
