Hyper-V won't start Server 2003 as a guest OS

I have a Win 10 Pro with Hyper-V version 10 on it and I have multiple guest OS set up.  I have a guest Server 2012, Win 10 and Win 7 but for some reason I can't get my Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 to install.  I just get the 'Boot failure' message.  I've tried getting another server 2003 iso but that didn't work either.  I can't install integration services either.  I think it's already installed.  Ideas?

You do not say if the other guests are 64-bit. Make sure VD-T (Virtualization technology) is enabled in BIOS, shut down, start up and try again.

If you still have issues, consider VMware Workstation as Server 2003 64-bit works in VMware Workstation.

Have you checked your boot order?

Are you sure the 2003 media you have works for booting?

not the boot order coz it works with another .iso.

I'll have to double check if the .iso actually works, I did check two different server 2003 iso's and no dice.
