We would like to try upgrading one of our servers at a remote site (in another state) to server 2016.  The server is a new build of Server 2012R2 so it doesn't currently have any roles or features installed making it a good candidate for an upgrade.  Is it possible to upgrade the server using a mounted ISO of Server 2016 since they do not have any installation media at their site?  I am sure the installation would kick off but I am concerned that it would hang when it rebooted.
