What CD/DVD originally was used when installing Windows 2003 Server?

According to (step 5) says:

Note the value in the Value column. If the value is <not set>, the default value is in effect as follows:
On a domain controller in a forest that was created on a domain controller running Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), the default value is 180 days.
On a domain controller in a forest that was created on a domain controller running Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003, the default value is 60 days.

The question is: How can I determine the source CD/DVD to install the Operating System was used? Where can I find the information about it?

    If I understand, you are only looking to view the type of install that was done?

    Thank you johnb6767!
    Your comment answer the half of my question.
    Now I need to know if the source CD/DVD contains Windows 2003 SP1 included or not.
    I mean, you know you can build a new operating system install from source CD/DVD containing the service pack 1 or maybe not. I need to find that answer.

    I dont think you can find that out easily... Only method I can think of........

    Is SP1 installed as an Update in Add/Remove Programs?

    If so, then it was a base install, with SP1 added after the install...

    Run teh following, and attach it here.....

    wmic qfe list full /format:htable >C:\hotfixes.htm

    There is a ServicePackInEffect Column that might add some insight....

    If they start at SP1, or SP2 etc....
