Can you do an in place upgrade from Windows 2012 to Windows 2012 R2 without a physical drive i.e. just using a virtual disk with the mounted ISO image for the DVD?

This is not a domain controller btw...

Yes, that should work fine.  Though I might put the ISO on a different drive than the C drive if possible.

Actually, it would work even if you were running on the drive you wanted to install to. I used DameonTools to mount an ISO and installed to the same hard drive i was running on with no problems.
