It would help if you posted the error. Update.exe is the file to run.

I get this

---------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Installation Wizard
---------------------------
The component "Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services" cannot be assigned the action "Update" because:

 - The Active Directory schema is not up-to-date.  You must run setup with the "/ForestPrep" switch.  If you have already done this with the current version of Setup, then you must wait for replication to complete.  Consult your documentation for details.

 - The local domain configuration is not up-to-date.  You must run setup with the "/DomainPrep" switch within this domain.  If you have already done this with the current version of Setup, then you must wait for replication to complete.  Consult your documentation for details.

You cannot install the service pack over the beta. You need the RTM version. If you don't have access to the RTM version then there is nothing more that you can do.

If you are asking if Exchange 2007 will support a migration from Exchange 2003 beta, then no. Exchange 2003 beta is over four years old. You need to use RTM media and service pack it for support for Exchange 2007.
