That is not a whole lot of information to go on. How big is the database? What is the network connection like between where the backups are stored and where the server is?

Have you had other similar types of restores that have been quicker?
Database is est. 90GB.
All configurations of Network, server hardware, disk, and SQL Server(2005 Ent) are same on same VM.
Only diff is O/S.
Same DB restore takes 2hours on Windows server 2003 R2; 4.5hours on Windows server 2008 R2.
