By the way the adprep is done for you in the background with the first 2012 box but if you want to do it manually you still can (adprep is on the 2012 media)

Thanks

It is, you can't migrate from server standard to server essentials. you can go from server essentials to standard:

In short you have to first have SBS 2003 (not server standard) to migrate to Essentials 2012. What you are trying to do is not possible to my knowledge. You will need to go from Server 2003 standard to 2012 standard.
