Install Windows 2003 Server on a Windows 7 Home Professional

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
trying to install Windows 2003 on a gateway computer that has windows 7 home professional.   it's ok if the current OS is completely removed.  problem is that during the installation the blue screen shows up after the install disk has finished loading the basic drivers etc but before it gives me a chance to indicate anything about partitions.  have tried this five times, and have restored the original OS without problems, but can't get the install to complete.

it's almost like this is not possible because of an incompatibility.
