Ohno!!!! your right.. i'v just looked at my cd's.. and I have used the wrong one!
i'm assuming I can insert the correct disk and upgrade? question is.. will this cause network disruption?..and should i continue with my migration.. and upgrade at the end?

End the migration and start from scratch. Better to do it properly than bodge it!!

yes will need to run a further forestprep to take your Schema to R2
Is there any reason you want to use the same name for the 2008 server in the end? I personally would avoid this to prevent issues down the line....I'd be interested to know if you can simply rename your box that is holding all 5 FSMO roles

I'd rather not risk renaming existing DC until it has been decommed.. theres been a couple of posts on here.. i'v sone googling about it.. and it looks like you can rename a server 2008 DC ..

sorry I think my "in the end" remark was misleading....I meant why did you want to use the same name at all? I believe you're quite correct in being able to rename a 2008 DC....I just wonder what renaming the server holding also the FSMO roles will do :P
