    Microsoft. They have various trial versions preconfigured that have a 120 day life before expiring.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

        I think most of them are somewhere off this page:

            Thanks Sorinso,

            I checked this link already before putting my post here, and as you can see I already have R2, MS site dont have preconfigured standard edition 2003. I contact with microsoft support too for this and they are saying no to me. For the download link I am unable to find any also. Any way I decided I'll use orignal key now, I already waste two bloddy weeks on searching trail version for standard edition.

            Thanks All.

              To be fair to Microsoft, they are offering these VHDs as a favour, and supporting a 6 year old OS where they have R2 (an incremental update) is "over and above" what a reasonable person would expect of them

                Even in the Virtual Labs you cannot find that dinosaur... Looks like you are stuck with R2. Any specific reason R2 will not do the job?
                You are aware of the fact that you cannot buy 2003 licenses anymore, only 2008. You can, however, install anything you like (back to Windows 2000, IIRR). But, again, where will you get the installation disk for such an old OS?

                  No one asked so I'll do it. Why not simply install it yourself and build your own VM? It's not difficult to do.
