This ISO does not include OS win2003


Hi, it's not supposed to. This media only meant to help you install the OS. For the actual OS, you will need to contact MS, I'm thinking.

If you are still facing driver- related issues then I will suggest you update your device drivers and choose Advanced Driver Updater.
