Wipe the drive first.

Use DBAN or Active@Killdisk (freely available on the internet) to give the drive a decent wipe before partitioning, formatting and installing Windows.

Make sure you have at least all the drivers necessary to get Windows installed if your 2003 disk does not contain them.

So, where does the failure occur? What errors do you receive?

Do you have the proper drivers for you hardware? Are they included in the basic Windows installation, or do you need them from IBM?

I can only offer very generic guesses to "did not fully install".

P.S., you don't need additional partitioning utilities, Windows setup should offer you to chose partitioning and formatting.
