advice where to download iso for window server 2003 32bit iso


  • hi,
    i need to install it on a vmware and do a upgrade testing purposes.
    I have tried to download this iso -> srv03_r2_2075_usa_x86fre_adsr2  which is an iso for window server 2003 r2 enterprise edition 32 bit but my vmware could not detect which operating system is in this disc image. Thus i couldn't kick start the installation.
    This is the iso link i was refering to -> which i couldn't install from on my vmware.
    Any link to download the iso is much appreciated.

  • Hi,

    AFAIK, the 2003 evaluation product is not available for download. You need a technet subscription to access the earlier version ISO's, 2003 is no longer a supported product so a trial is not publicly available.

    You can download the preconfigured VHD and try in your lab environment.
