yep, finally.  Had to shove the new driver into place,  but did not help 
with the restart problem

can start and stop via PVE.   Have a few other quirks too, like 
configuring page file for crash dump, another topic for another vendor.

But it still runs.  Maybe time just to pamper this old creature till 
they decide to  to move its purpose to another resource (not soon enough 
if you ask me)

so get-osinfo shows

  "id" : "mswindows",
    "kernel-release" : "3790",
    "kernel-version" : "5.2",
    "machine" : "x86",
    "name" : "Microsoft Windows",
    "pretty-name" : "Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2",
    "variant" : "server",
    "variant-id" : "server",
    "version" : "Microsoft Windows Server 2003",
    "version-id" : "2003"

and config shows

boot: c
bootdisk: virtio0
cores: 12
cpu: kvm32
ide2: ISOStore:iso/virtio-win-0.1.164.iso,media=cdrom,size=362130K
