Install Windows Server 2003

I service a small car dealership (recently hired to support them) and their server crashed. The hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced. They have a backup of their data but that is all so Server 2003 will need to be reinstalled. The question I have is, can I take the server home to my shop, install Server 2003 and then return it to the dealership to configure network settings?

Thank you!

Sure, as long as you have replacement hard drive(s), a Windows 2003 CD with their product key. I suggest setting it up then running a restore using their backup (if you have it).

Here is an install video if you need it

You sure can, you can configure the server and everything.  Just have to rejoin the workstations to the domain and make sure the ipschema matches the equipment (cameras, router, etc).
