Is there a way to see if adprep worked properly when it ran the first time?

The new machine is probably R2; you need to run yet another adprep /forestprep from the \CMPNENTS\R2\ADPREP\ folder on the second CD:
Error message when you run the Active Directory Installation Wizard: "The version of the Active Directory schema of the source forest is not compatible with the version of Active Directory on this computer"
