I have a question that has come up on numerous occasions.

Is there a tool that will tell you want cd that you will need based upon what your product key is? I have a server 2003 but there are 4 different version of 2003. I also know that it was installed about 6-7 years ago. I have a pro technet subscription and I have been able to download various versions of the 2003 but i am having a hard time getting the right one for the product key.

Any help would be appreciated.

Go to the site that the link provides, download it, and run it. It's that simple.

Edit: Once you have it open, scroll down to license and click on it, it will show the code if it is viable.

If the product key you have is official then the version of server will be on the card or sticker. At Seven years old it is probably the first release version of server 2003
