In-place upgrade of Hyper-V Server 2k8 R2 to Full Server 2k8 w/Hyper-v role

I have an installation of Hyper-V Server 2k8 R2 and wish to upgrade the installation to Full Server 2,8 w/Hyper-v role.  Any way to do this?  Easy or RPIA?

Since Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 is based on Win2K8 R2 Enterprise, that is the direction to take ... but ultimately there is no in-place upgrade.

If using VMM, then live migrate the VMs to another H-V 2K8 R2 box and flatten the existing box to do a fresh install of Win2K8 R2 Enterprise with GUI or Server Core (?).

Thanks for the accurate (I guess) answer.  It wasn't necessarily the answer I was hoping for, but realistically, the answer I expected!
