You may find this to be of some use (assuming you haven't already got hold of it):-
However, from the age of the server (2002/3), I rather suspect you'll find that it was originally designed by HP to run the then current Windows server OS, which would have been Windows Server 2003. This was around 520 MB in size, which would, of course, fit comfortably on a CD:-
I reckon the only way that you could install a later edition on there (assuming it has sufficient RAM/storage capacity) would be to swap out the CD-ROM drive for a DVD drive. That's the only way I can think of that you could get this to work, given the hardware variables in play.
Hope that helps, anyway.
