You would need to purchase the SBS Transition Pack in order for you to convert your SBS environment into a regular domain without any restrictions. However, you are aware that you can install the new Exchange Server as part of the SBS domain, and that the transition pack would be rather unnecessary, unless there are other reasons for you needing to migrate to a standard domain.

Yes. The 'intranet' is simply Microsoft's Sharepoint package, and that will not be removed when you run the Transition Pack.

Can you be a little more detailed? Have you run the transition pack yet? What is the error message you are receiving?

I object to this - I provided the appropriate information with regards to running the transition pack as per the original question - 'would like to migrate that to Regular Domain'. Based on that information would make the transition pack the route you have to take. At the moment, you aren't running a 'regular domain', you still have an SBS domain.
