migrating through a back up

Recommended Posts

So I am currently using windows server 2008 r (32 bit) and i am wanting to upgrade to Server 2012. There are 2 problems with this 1. you cannot upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit and 2. I am having to use the same computer for the server. I came up with an Idea and i was wanting to know if anyone thinks this would work. So I have both win server 2008 and 2008 r2 and I was wondering if I did a clean install of win server 2008 to 2008 r2 if i could load all of my informatinon onto the r2 through one of my routine backups that i have. Then I should be able to run the regular upgrade to 2012. Let me know your thoughts please!


P.s. I have been an IT person for 3 months now so my knowledge is very slim.

I do not quite understand what you are trying to do.



First, what do you mean by "load all of my informatinon"?



Second, why do you want to install 2008 R2, and not directly 2012?
