Upgrade 2012 Foundation


I have a client that has a Windows Foundation 2012 Server and we need to upgrade them to Windows Standard 2012.

I have been told by the supplier that the upgrade can be done without a complete re-install, they mentioned it can be upgraded by running 2 command lines?

Any ideas?

Thanks Lee

So by running this command line online it will upgrade the server to Standard, hope it's as easy as that as I don't fancy adding the machines to the domain again

DISM /Online /Set Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

In the end we re installed the OS from scratch.
