To get Windows 7 working with server 03 you need to relax the security settings. Windows server 03 is older than some of the new security features, so you need to disable them.

Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy

Local Policies - Security Options

Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Send LM & NTLM responses

Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption
