Had a quick look through the logs and found lots of the following: Failed to unload offline registry
Do you have antivirus/antispyware programs running whilst the upgrade is in progress? If you do then try uninstalling it and attempt the upgrade again.

Done 2008R2 to 2012R2 in home lab on 2 DC's
Failed first time so I ran the Prep manually and it wouldn't download the pre-upgrade requirement. Once done these manually it went through OK.
The only issue I had was that it needed activating straight away, I noticed when the DC's started shutting down
Make sure you are happy you have backups in place.
Still doing the same thing. Log Files Attached againErrors2.zip
This time it could be down to lack of free space:

Yea that's my c drive
How. Who ever set the bloody server up only set a 40 gb drive. And f is 300 odd gb.
Where do I start looking for space?
When in windows there 21gb of space on c.

Could you not use shrink on the larger volume and then extend the smaller one?
Or is gpaeted better? Will it read the raid volumes?
Download and boot the server from it and see what it comes up with, you can play around with the adjustment before committing them so you'll be able to see what you can actually do. Be very careful thou, it is a very powerful piece of software and you can quickly brick your server if you do it wrong. Just make doubly sure you have a backup before attempting any work of this sort on a production server, and more importantly make sure the backup is good and you know how to restore it should the worst happen.
EDIT - actually reading about it, you CAN resize the system volume while it is running, but only if the unallocated space on the disc is available next to the exisitng partition. Luckily Gparted allows you to move the partitions around on the disc so you should be able to create unallocated space at the end of the existing partition and expand the partition into it. I must admit it's a while since I've had to do this as all my machines are virtualised now so playing with partitions like this is almost a thing of the past, but I do remember Gparted being invaluable for this.
