You need to remove SharePoint Foundation 2013 and than install SharePoint Server 2013.. You cannot install SharePoint Server on the top of SharePoint Foundation..

I have faced this problem.. :)

  • No this isn't the case, SharePoint Foundation is just a free (limited) version of SharePoint. If you want SharePoint Server license (full version) you just need to install SharePoint Server setup files and it will include the needed framework. For now you have to remove SharePoint Foundation 2013 and then install SharePoint Server 2013. You can download the trial version of SharePoint 2013 and install it with your key. go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=403832 – Arsalan Adam Khatri Dec 16 '14 at 8:09
