Exchange 2003 install greyed out

I am installing exchange 2003 on a server 2003 dc. I have done all the prep on the server and after I put in the product key everything is greyed out and I am not able to install. It only tells me I am not meeting the prerequisites. The is the second exchange server on the domain and I am planning on moving mailboxes and shutting down the other exchange server. Any help would be appreciated.

What prerequisites does it tell you you're missing?

Exchange needs:
IIS
ASP.NET
SMTP
NNTP

I would also HIGHLY recommend reading the following article for installing Exchange on a DC: http://www.petri.co.il/problems_with_exchange_2003_installed_on_domain_controllers.htm

It doesn't say any specific prerequistes. Just all of the install options are greyed out. I have already installed  IIS, asp.net, smtp, & nntp. Also ran the dcdiag and netdiag tools both which returned no errors. I have tried installed and uninstalled the services restarted IIS, made sure asp.net was allowed under IIS

One of the components is missing.
Have you checked the list from the auto play menu that Exchange pops up?

Which options under IIS have you installed?

Yes I have gone through the entire checklist. Under IIS i have installed. World Wide Web Service, SMPT, NNTP, IIS Manager, & COmmon Files. Also have installed asp.net under application server.

Something isn't correct.

I would suggest removing all of the IIS components, rebooting the machine and reapplying them. It could be that one of them has not registered properly.

If you are sure that you have all of the required components, then I would begin to suspect the machine.

You also are aware that installing Exchange on to a domain controller isn't recommended?
