Do you mean by transfer that you just took the old drive out and put it into the new server? This will never work because the hardware of the new server is completely different which will cause a never ending stream of errors and problems due to HAL conflicts. The best thing to do is to continue to use your old server while you do a fresh install and setup from scratch. Besides the newer drive from that you hopefully bought with the new server will be much faster. Then you can transfer the files and migrate Active Directory (if you are using a domain)to complete the switch over to the new server.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
