Server 2008 R2 (x64) in-place upgrade problem


  • We have a 2008 R2 server that will not boot (boots into the recovery console only). We do not have in image to restore it with and we have several apps (including Sharepoint) on this system we need to get back online. The only thing I can think of doing at this point is an in-place recovery to get it back up and running. 

    The problem is when I boot with the Server 2008 R2 DVD and select UPGRADE I get a message that I need to boot into windows first, then insert the DVD. Well, I can't boot into windows first!

    Is there something I'm missing to get this to work?
