When I try to upgrade our current instance that is at SQL 2008 RTM (10.0.1600.22) to the new 2008 R2 version I get an error.

Whether I try to add features to a current instance, or even try to upgrade from SQL 2005 (there is no option to upgrade from older 2008 versions), I get an error during the Features check, saying that a feature needs to be selected for the upgrade to continue.

All of the instance features and the shared features are already selected, but grayed out, so I cannot make a selection, or move forward.

Help !
