    Yes, because the install media for Server 2003 requires a specific type of key. A trial or retail CD would reject your OEM key.

    sorry if you think like that. I spend the whole day yesterday. converted burned. downloaded converted burned.i burned already 10-12 disk it simply is not an oem 2003 x64 version. It won't except my oem key. It does only except the retail keys which are not mine and i do not want to use.There is so much here and i have no idea which one will work simply work as Windows 2003 Standard R2 x64 oem version.I need OEM not retail. If i download and convert from the link you have posted it does not accept my OEM product key.

    maybe iam doing something wrong.

    i have downloaded X13-05774.img and CRMSXEVL_EN-2-CRMSXFPP_EN.delta.

    then i have run the code
    xdelta3 decode -s X13-06218.img CRMEXEVL_EN-2-CRMEXFPP_EN.delta

    after that the following file was created
    en_win_srv_2003_r2_standard_x64_with_sp2_cd1_X13-05757

    added folder STANDARD
    added 4 files from i386 in i386 folder from iso
    added crc.txt and slp.txt

    burned the iso. The iso has all the original/added files and it is bootable.

    where is my mistake ?

    Tito already pointed you to my thread!

    Any more & I would have to just do it for you...

    Why do you burn anything at all?

    Never heard of virtualization?

    Absolutely perfect for testing

    indianx, your files are all confused, but I think that is just in your post, your output file looks like the correct one. You need to convert that to OEM. Even though your original disk is giving you read errors, you can probably still get the OEMBIOS.* files you need from that, also the SETUPP.INI. Replace those in your ISO and it should work. If it doesn't accept your original key, use the MS reinstallation key, I see no problem in doing this. You have the original key and reinstallation rights, use it.

    sebus, there are so many versions, and the threads are all interwoven, it all becomes a bit (for me) overwhelming. But the info is spot on, just needs sorting out, thanks!

    I am sure that after 7 months he has it either sorted or just gave up...
