Identify what is installed in an exixiting MS SQL 2008 instance

Installing sql2016 has a series of options to install.  We have sql2008 and going to upgrade.  In order to select (check) the appropriate options to install, how can we identify what was installed in sql2008 or can we do so we can install the corresponding objects? Or should we install everything (mark all) in sql2017?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

According to this blog post, there's a "discovery" report you can run from the command line.

I think you need that Setup.exe file somewhere to get the discovery report. You might need to find an installation disk in order to run it. Maybe an MSDN copy?
