Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should install from a streamlined 2k3 SP1 cd. This will prevent your server being compromised during the install process. Then install Exchange.

    Hello, If your doing a clean install (not an upgrade), build your OS first, apply any service packs, patches and hotfixes that apply to your OS configuration. Once you have built your OS then move on to the Exchange install and follow the same path. Install Exchange followed by service packs for Exchange etc. Good Luck!

    Agree to the licenses agreement Enter your serial number The next screen will prompt you to select what components you want to install. The typical configuration is selected. This should be fine with most installation. If you need you can enable any additional services you wish At the installation type screen - we are setting up a new organization, so we have used the default selection “Create a new Exchange Organization” at the organization name screen enter the name of your company Agree to the license statement Review the your selections and press next to begin installation wizard will now install the components you have selected this will take several minutes to 1/2 hour.  When it is complete you are ready to add your users
