Can you tell me what error message you get?
Was the back up of the old server a full back-up? (Including the system state)?
Are you sure it included the system state, by the sounds of it, it did not hence why you cannot boot into the OS.
It could be - is secure boot disabled in the new BIOS?
You could install server from disk and see If it boots
this would rule out the back-up
