Upgrade 2003 Standard SP1 to 2003 Enterprise

I would like to upgrade a 2003 Standard SP1 server to 2003 Enterprise.
But it said my current Windows version is newer and not allow me to do so.
May I know is there any way to force the upgrade? Thank you very much

Hi,

I'm afraid we cannot upgrade in this way. The best way is backup needed
information and perform a fresh installation.

I realize this is quite late, but I have to disagree with Vincent.
According to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810613, You can upgrade
2003 Standard to 2003 Enterprise - it is supported. The problem you are
running into is most likely in that the Enterprise Media doesn't have
SP1 slipstreamed in. If you create a slipstreamed 2003 Enterprise CD, I
don't believe you'll have a problem upgrading.
