We have a client that needs to keep SQL Server 2003 due to their software. We purchased a new Dell server running Windows Server 2012. I cant find anything on this online. Does anyone have some guides or a link that can guide us on installing SQL Server 2003 on our Dell PowerEdge running Windows Server 2012? Thanks in advance.

There is no SQL 2003:
SQL flavors:

 SQL Server 2014
     codename Hekaton SQL14
 SQL Server 2012
     codename Denali
 SQL Server 2008 R2
     codename Kilimanjaro
 SQL Server 2008
     codename Katmai
 SQL Server 2005
     codename Yukon
 SQL Server 2000
     codename Shiloh
 SQL Server 7.0

Please verify the version you want to install:

SQL server install is pretty straightforward by the way.
