Migrating SBS 2008 to 2016 Essentials using 'Migrate Windows Small Business Server 2008 to Windows Server Essentials"
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-essentials/migrate/migrate-windows-small-business-server-2008-to-windows-server-essentials

The server is a Dell with 2016 Essentials pre-installed with the Essentials role, it was not configured as a domain controller.

In the above document I'm stuck at Step 2: Install WSE in migration mode https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-essentials/migrate/install-windows-server-essentials-in-migration-mode
I don't have an option to install in Migration Mode, how do I get to that point?

I have installed a few SBS 2011 to WSE2012R2 but not SBS2008 to 2016, I would rather migrate than setup a new domain.

Thanks
