    I have a bootleg edition of Windows 2003 server, and trying to install a service pack, but my key is not genuine. I haven't used this in a while, and I remember a few years back that I was able to install it. Microsoft must have changed the service pack to check for the key. Are there any old versions of the service pack around?

    You are going wrong way around. Invest a bit of time, learn how to make genuine disk (or download one if you can not follow delta instructions)

    Make it OEM, be legal, have no issues
