    ECC 5.0 is not supported on Windows Server 2008, you would need to go for version upgrade of SAP if you wish to move to Windows 2008.

    The following SAP Note might be useful to you ...

    Note 1476239 - SAP system migration to Windows 2008/2008 R2

    SAP Note 1476928 - System copy of SAP systems on Windows 2008 (R2): SQL Server.
