asked on

overwrite 2008 default instance into updated one- best way?

the server has two sql instances
2008R2 instance
2012 instance (named)

the 2008R2 service has been stopped and only the named instance is being used now.

what will be the right procedure to install a default instance (not named) 2012 instance to stand alongside of the named instance?

should i first uninstall the 2008R2? what is the best practise on this?
