How can I install an older version of Windows Server on my new dell machine? The os loader only allows for Windows 2003 R2. We have 2003 Standard. How can I make this work?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you have the media for the OS you want to load and the drivers for Windows 2003 then yes.

Keep in mind that Windows 2003 and Windows 2003 R2 are basically the same thing.
