    Are you trying to upgrade to 32 bit Windows 2008? I am not a fan of in-place upgrades but you can only upgrade to a 32 bit OS if you currently have 32 bit installed and the same applying for 64 bit. 64 bit OS upgrade to a 64 bit version.

    Your Standard upgrade to Standard is ok.

          Have you disabled Sophos prior to starting the upgrade? Are you able to migrate to a new server rather than upgrade?

              No probs and good luck. Feel free to post anything else back or if you need further advice. Of course do the usual Event log checks and I would have thought that there would be one, which shows an upgrade report as well.
