Is it possible to upgrade Windows Server 2012 to Server 2012 R2 when Native VHD Boot is used?  So far I have found it's not possible.  I've looked through the DISM documentation and it mentions offline updated, but I do believe that refers to OS patching, not direct upgrades.

 

If this isn't possible, why not?  I would imagine folks would rather upgrade an OS than deploy new for things like Domain Controllers, infrastructure servers, or even client OS like Windows 8 to Windows 8.1.

Yes, I'm well aware of the error message when you run setup manually.  That's why I'm asking if DISM or another method can be used to upgrade the OS without a complete re-install or V2P2V.

I know no way. Maybe someone else has an idea.
