... I too am seeking a PCI Simple Communication Controller driver for Server 2003. Have you progressed in a resolve for this? If so, do you have a step-by-step you can share.
I too have created a new post titled "Optiplex 755 w/Server 2003" with the same inquiry.

Note0: The following is NOT formally supported via Dell or Intel, but a workaround. Implementation is at your own risk.
Note1: Still under test, therefore your response and/or experience is encouraged
Note2: Reversible fixes are not supported
Subject: PCI Simple Communication Controller (Optiplex 755 w/Server 2003) (Q35 Chipset)
Topic: HECI.inf modification
Dell Driver: AMT HECI (R162295)
The following modification allows HECI.inf to be recognized within Server 2003
Open the HECI.inf using Notepad
Within the section titled "Manufacturers and Models Section" locate the sub-section [Intel.NTx86.5.2]
Remove the default content, which is described as an ";empty section, so this INF does ... " (see example below)
Replace the content with the information within the sub-section [Intel.NTx86.5.1] (see example below)
Within Device Manager, update the driver manually... pointing to the HECI folder.
Example before the modification:
; Empty section, so this INF does not support NT 5.2 and later for x86. (2003)
; DisplayName Section DeviceId
Example after the modification:
I am installing WinVistaBusinessSP2 on a Dell Optiplex 755 and I ran into the same problem, I installed the fix mentioned, Intel_AMT-HECI_A02_R255437, and it worked. Thanks!
Server 2003 can use XP drivers, Server 2008 can use VISTA/WIN7 Drivers.

thanks very much. i just installed windows 7 on a Dell Optiplex 755. it found and loaded all the drivers except for the these. i used the ones you suggested listed for Vista (no windows 7 drivers listed for the 755) and it worked great!
There is no PCI Simple Communications Controller sounds like the fritz chip is activated and you did not install the chipset drivers. The TPM (ST Microelectronics Trusted Platform Module ) chip has a unique and secret RSA key. The name "Fritz chip" was coined by Professor Ross Anderson.
Bios A04 has the following fixes.
1. Removed China (Sinosun) TPM support.
2. Resolved defect with the floppy IDE redirection feature.
3. Optimized PCI-Express training algorithm for certain multi-head video cards.
4. Added ImageServer support.
5. Added SATA legacy mode support for older operating systems.
6. Improved handling of scenario where system runs out of Option ROM space.
7. Updated TxT AC Module to 1.3.
8. Added support for systems with no TPM installed.
9. Updated ME firmware to 1125 (UUID fix for AMT provisioning).
10. Improved hard drive password support in RAID mode.
11. Added support for RAID 0.
12. Changed default power policy to support MEDIASABLE SKU.
Thanks! That took care of the "problem" driver.
The AMT AND HECI Drivers I believe are under chipset.
