hi experts, I have a server running windows server 2008-32bit with mirror drives. I need to upgrade it to Windows Server 2012-64bit to take advantage of the 12b of ram. What would be the recommended method? thank you.  Do I just back up the entire data then install windows 2012 and restore data and load programs? If I remove of the mirror drives and install it once the server 2012 is up can I just put it as a slave and restore data from it?
