Hello,
and welcome to the forums.

For physical Windows machines you need the Veeam Agent for Windows (VAW). VAW has support for 2008 R2 SP1 and later. So the answer is: no

Other ways: migrate that old machine to a virtual machine. For VMs we don't care about the operating system inside the VM (well, application aware processing for 2003 inside VMs will be dropped with V10)

Best regards,
Hannes
