    I 2nd that,

    Slim chance you can but you may be able to:

    Depending on what disk configuration you have, if the server was a low end unit with IDE drives in or SATA drives you could image the server to a new set of disks. This will only work if not on a raid etc.

    This way you can upgrade it once on the copied image set, tweek it a bit and be confident you can go back. Do watch out though for major changes as this may effect Active directory or partner servers

    hope all goes well
