upgrade windows server 2003 with sp2 to r2

Microsoft Windows server 2003 r2
February 11, 2010 at 20:17:21
Specs: Windows server 2003, 1.8 Ghz/1 GB
I am using windows server 2003 Enterprise Edition ( x86, 32 bit).
When MS released service pack 2, I integrated it into windows server 2003 OS and burned a new cd and installed it on my server.
Now I have windows server 2003 r2 and I want to install it but I cannot install it unless I remove service pack 2.
kindly can someone suggest any solution to this because I cannot reinstall a fresh copy of OS

You need to get the Server 2003 R2 w/SP2 integrated media. Then you can run the r2setup.exe program from CD#2 to upgrade your system. The original media for 2003 R2 had SP1 integrated, but they did release a new set with SP2 integrated.

Thanks for your reply.

there is a slight problem in my scenario.. and that is that I have received only "R2" burned on a CD, there is no windows server 2003 sp2 with it from my HQ.
