Question: Can you migrate a W2K8 Core server to W2K8 R2 Core server?
Answer: No, you can only migrate a R2 core install. The list of supported migration paths are at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd379545(WS.10).aspx

Question: Is there a limitation on the size of the data that can be migrated?
Answer: I've been looking at the various docs and I cannot find any space limitations for migration, the limit would be imposed by the amount of available drive space on the drives used for migration.
