  • Hi Ratan,

    Seems like there is some kind of mismatch of drives (drives letters) between existing and new SharePoint Server. If this is the case then rename the drive and run configuration wizard again.

  • Hi Ratan,

    This is generic error message which does not explain why you are getting this error, for us to better understand your problem we need inner exception / detail messgre. i would recommend you to have a look at event log or ULS log and paste relevant error message here.
