I think in 2003 terms that means Itanium.  I don't think Windows got
the EFI/GPT x64 boot code until Vista/2008 code.

So you need to do an "advanced" disk partitioning, and carve out a <
2TB boot volume to install Server 2003 on, then carve out another
larger partition (using GPT) as a non-booting data partition.

And/or run some kind of hardware stress test on RAM and video.
