In place upgrade windows server 2003 standard to 2008 standard
Posted on 2015-02-11
I am trying to perform in place upgrade from windows server 2003 standard to windows server 2008 standard, during the upgrade completion I received the following error:
"Windows installation encountered an error and can not continue. Your computer will now restart, and your previous version of windows will be restored".
While I click Ok the installation procedure did not move forward rather it restore existing OS windows server 2003. I am trying it third time but still no luck. I have uninstalled antivirus from the server 2003 but still receiving the above error. I am trying to perform the upgrade in VM environment.
Can you please advise, what steps I am missing or what needs to be done to complete the upgrade successful.
