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?

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

Thanx!  Worked!  

But what is there is  no setup files? (since we are working with a series of installs I found the relating setup)

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?
