When doing a setup for a hardware replacement, the recommended setup is the
"pre-migration server".

Is that installation basically a NetWare server without any additional products
installed, or are there any other differences compared to a manual installation?

Wouldn't it make sense to setup the pre-migration server with the same set of
products installed as the old server has installed? The SYS:'s content is just
copied to SYS:SYS.MIG\, dropping the stuff from there to the required paths doesn't
update the installed product's list.

Just 58 more days, then NetWare goes EOL.
