    My guessing it could be the raid controller.

    Bloody hp
    Have a look at this KB article - Yes it's for vista but it gives a large list of logs

    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.

    This time it could be down to lack of free space:

    I'm assuming drive D: is your drive C: when not booted into winpe.

    I've used the GParted live bootable disc to re-size system partitions before.

    GParted -- Live CD/USB/PXE/HD

    Make sure you have a good backup first thou!

    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?

    You can't resize the system volume on Windows while it is running, that's why you have to use Gparted. but that's exactly what you would do, providing they share the same physical disc system, you can shrink the F:\ and expand the C:\. windows is normally OK with this, but occasionally it can throw a wobbly at having the system partition resized. It's only happened to me once however on a Server 2008 box and I think the newer editions of windows server are much more tolerant to this sort of adjustment. And yes it should read your RAID setup fine unless it's a really obscure controller.

    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.
