    nope ..well it might be possible. But cPanel is at the point where it's almost a hosting operating system in itself. You really need to start with a fresh server OS install and the cPanel installer will do the rest. You could take down the box install a new drive and slave the other one and use it to migrate data over. The best bet would be a separate server migration where you have cPanel ready and running on a new machine and then you migrate the domains and email accounts over.
