Did a reinstall (clean) of Server 2003/RAID 1/ no problems with install, but soon as I got the hardware drivers installed and tried to do updates it will not find or download updates.
When I tried to install SP2 or SP3 I get an error " not a valid win32 application.
I downloaded the files from the MS site, and have downloaded about 4 times, and get the same result. Anyone ever deal with this and have any suggestions?

Make sure you are downloading the Service Pack for Windows 2003 not Windows XP. There is no Service Pack 3 for Windows 2003.

32 Bit Service Pack 2

64 Bit Service Pack 2
