How to tell what version of server 2003 enterprise installation disk were used for the original installation.
Posted on 2012-04-09
I am helping a client recover an old server that was taken down by a virus.
the data is intact, the Microsoft License Sticker is unreadable.
I am new to the site, all the installation disks are gone, and I need to get them up and running. I can read the data, I have it backed up, it was in a workgroup status not a domain, acording to the belarc print
What I have is a belarc advisor print out that list the OS as:
Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 1 build 3790
I have the License Key from the Belarc Print out.
What I do not know, is the SP1 build 3790 the install version or is that listed somewhere else and this is the last SP installed?
I have a set of Enterprise installation disks with no service pack, and they did not work.
Are the only disks that will work, be SP1 Disks? I t seems no one I know has a set of SP1 disks, will Sp2 disks work?
Are they still available from Microsoft?
If not is there a reputable site to buy or preferably download them them from?
Thank you Experts,
