Anyone know where I could get a copy of the HP OEM Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition CD?  A client has a good COA on a server, but I've only been able to put my hands on the VLA install which doesn't like the OEM key.

What about contacting HP directly for this ISO image? You should be able to get one via their service if their server is used by you or your client. I admit this could require some payment but still it should be available.

As stated, HP.  Else, Ebay (but I would doubt ebay would have it since, strictly speaking, the only one who should be selling HP OEM CDs is HP - and even then, ebay *I THINK* requires key and media to be sold, so you'd effectively have to buy the full product.

Over ten hours on the phone with HP in the last week. I will say that some of the people at HP actually try to claim that "Hewlett-Packard has never sold any version of Windows Server other than 2008" and "You have to contact Microsoft to get OEM software" ...and my favorite, "they transferred you HERE?" I did finally talk to someone at HP who got back to me that they were going to send out an OEM CD "if they can find one" and bill me if they do - and it should arrive in eight business days (even though I offered to pay for overnight shipping) - if they can locate one.  The box is still in warranty, otherwise I don't think I'd have gotten that far?

Perhaps someone will offer ftp of an iso.

The problem is that giving you this ISO by anyone else than HP or MS is illegal. This is OEM CD and only HP is allowed to share that. Thus insist on your way on pressing HP head. It is their duty to contact MS and request that CD for you not yours.
