If it is a new build with no users or anything I would declare it a bad build. Uninstall Exchange using add/remove programs, reboot the machine drop it in to a workgroup and wipe the thing. New builds should not give problems this early (if ever) so should be reset.
The only times I have seen SP2 cause problems is when the server has been around for a bit and restarting the server then trying to install the service pack immediately often gets round those problems. New build - shouldn't cause any problems.
