How to upgrade from Windows server2008 standard sp1 to Server 2008 R2

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi we have a Server 2008 Standard and want to ipgrade it to R2, does anyone have a step by step guide of how to do this and what you need to do to prepare for it?

We will be upgrading a  DC, DNS, Antivirus, File Server, Print server,DHCP server from server 2008 Standard to 2008 standard R2.

there is also another server which is running exchange 2007 i mention this so as to rule out that once svr1 is upgraded  that the exchange server stops running as this would be very bad
