I have to buy a new server machine without Windows pre-installed. I have one server running Windows Server 2003 and I want to move all the license information from this old server machine to my new server machine. Once I done I will deactivate my old server.

This all depends on the licensing model the original server was licensed with. If the old server had an OEM version of Windows, there's nothing you can do to transfer it. –  Ben Pilbrow Jan 24 '12 at 13:14
