Windows Vista build 6003 is an updated version of Windows Vista Service Pack 2.

It was first introduced in the KB4493471 update for Windows Server 2008 because the minor revision numbers are required to stay within a certain range (0x4000-0x5fff inclusive, or decimal 16384-24575; the version of the kernel in the previous month's update is 6.0.6002.24566 (vistasp2_ldr_escrow.190311-1800), where the minor revision number is 0x5ff6). This build number change allows its server counterpart to be serviced for the remainder of its lifecycle by pushing back the revision number, whilst keeping the overall version number unique.[1]

It features a new version of the HAL driver which partially fixes the corruption bug that affects Intel CPUs based on Haswell and later microarchitectures, present in build 6002 and older.
