Upgrade 2008 R2 Enterprise to 2012 Possible? If so, what to download


  • Hi, I have a test machine set up with server 2008 r2 enterprise.  I'm trying to perform an in-place upgrade to server 2012, and can't find the version I need.  I have tried server 2012 datacenter, standard, and volume licensing versions, and each time, I get the error:

    windows server 2008  enterprise cannot be upgraded to windows server....back up and format.

    Is there an in place upgrade path from 2008 R2 enterprise to 2012?  If so, can someone tell me exactly what to download, either from Technet or from the VLSC?
