I have a server that is giving me all kinds of problems - its a DC and has had adprep / forestprep and domain prep run on it. The upgrade never goes anywhere when I start it. When I even run the upgrade advisor it just stops - however in safe mode the advisor works flawlessly. What happens if I try to do the upgrade from within safe mode? WIll it work as is it not just replacing everything?
