A recent project I was working on involved deploying five physical servers for use and Veeam repository servers. The problem however is the operating system was pre-instaled on a different RAID set to the one I was expecting it to be on. I could have rebuilt the servers, but I figured it would be quicker to back them up and then bare metal restore the operating system onto the correct RAID set. This would save the hassle of finding OEM media and having to re-install all the devices after the operating system was installed.
I will assume you know how to create a backup of the system and recovery media with the Veeam Agent for Windows. You can grab a free copy of the agent from here. Download the trial and install it. It will ask if you want to operate in free mode and also run through the recovery media creation wizard.
The steps below outline how to perform the bare metal recovery with advanced disk layout options. This is how you move the operating system onto another set of disks.
Bare metal recovery environment loading, it is a modified version of Windows PE.
