2008 R2 (windows 7 kernel) is a different product SKU, it is not an update for 2008 SP2 (vista kernel) That being said you can still download an evaluation here.

Download Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition x64 (Full Install) VHD from Official Microsoft Do...


an in-place upgrade of 2008 SP2 to 2008 R2 SP1 may be possible to do but licensed 2008 R2 installation media will be required which can still be had via a Visual Studio subscription.

Thanks,  I call to MS support  too, as you said that's not a simple update version, need to buy the ESU (need to ask retailer then know the price)  for extented support then possible to get it.
