But for being sure about this you can try to change the password by using a Hiren's bootup CD and then see if you will get a popup window to activate it or not?

It maybe that the windows server 2003 is not an original version, as you said there is no pop ups for activating the key!
I think,this can be the issue here. Is it a genuine one?

I think this popup is dependant on the "help and support" service, from what I remember you can open a system prompt/ command shell on boot. once you are there try this and then reload.
1. Open a command prompt.
2. Navigate to %windir%\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries
3. Run this command:
start /w helpsvc /svchost netsvcs /regserver /install
4. Once this command completes the Help and Support service should now appear in services.msc
5. Start the Help and Support service
Also make sure you have not already used the activation key.
Let me know how you get on
