Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition

Hi I have had a server in production for a few years and we have not made any recent software changes or updates and now it's freezing during the Windows 2003 splash screen.  I see no errors in the hardware.  

Any suggestion on how to resolve this, much appreciated!

Have you attempted to boot into safe mode and see if the issue still persists.
If you can successfully log into safe mode; it could be a driver issue.

I am able to boot into Safemode with Networking so far.  

I have tried "Last Known Good Configuration" and that did not work.  

If it's a driver, wouldn't that show up in the event logs?

makes sense actually as this is a very old server and it will only boot into safe mode or debugging mode.
