I have Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials.  I need to upgrade a Windows 2003 Server, with minimal downtime.

Is there a way to do it in-place?   If not, can I get a link to instructions?
It's a simple configuration of 2003 - Terminal Server just sharing a directory of files and running Word and Quicken.

I can put a second hard drive in the tower - and then install 2012 on that if I have to.

Thanks
