Are you restoring a backup of an uEFI system to a BIOS based system ? If yes, then its not supported & hence the error. Lastly, do ensure the disk size is atleast as same or larger than the original.

In my case, I restore the right server, not another, And SDR disc gives it error.

"Rirmware types do not match. For the restore operation to continue the backed up firmware type and the current firmware type must match"

Help pls, that is it can be?
