Exchange 2007 (32) on server 2008 (32)

I am trying to install exchange 2007 trial (32bit)  on server 2008 (beta3 32bit)  The prep install screen tells me that Powershell is not installed but as i am awaer powershell is part of server 2008 - so at this point i assume i will try to install powershell anyway,  half way through the install of powershell it stalls and tells me ive run out of space (memory i take it - not disk space) I have seen this before in the past and it has usually be a problem with ram an App leaking memory or somthing i have 3 gb on this server and its only using half during this install,  i thinkk it is more likley to be that powershell conflict because it is already there.

Anyone have any ideas ??  i know i should prob just put a 64b system together and test it on server 2008 (64) with exchange 2007 (64) but i would like to see functionality before i go down this route.

What are you trying to install on to Windows 2008? Exchange 2007 RTM or Exchange 2007 SP1 beta? If it is the RTM I don't think it will work. You will need to look at the service pack version. Although I haven't seen any instructions released from Microsoft yet on how to install E2007 on to Windows 2008. I would suggest that you switch to using Windows 2003 for the eval - there are no benefits to using Windows 2008 on the 32 bit version.
