I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

upgrades tend to be messy a clean install is always the recommended route. If you still want to continue, what roles are currently installed on that server?

just iis and file services.

If you don't have another server then go for the in place upgrade. Just make a backup of everything before you start with the upgrade. It should work all fine after the upgrade but the backup will give you a chance to rollback if any issue is found.
Good luck.
