  • Hi,

    Since you are changing OS version here it has nothing to do with SQL Server. Get a new box install Windows 2012 R2 on it.

    Install SQL server 2012 standdard edition on this new server then move database system and user by backup restore mechanism. Backup and restore of system databases

    If all goes perfect decommision old Windows server 2008 r2
