Upgrading Exchange 2007 to SP1 in a windows2003/2008 Domain

My current setup is a Windows 2003 Server with Exchange 2007 that acts as the Primary Domain controller, I also have a second domain controller that is a Windows 2008 Server.  A few days ago when I added the Windows 2008 server to the domain, i was required to do the "adprep" commands.  

Everything looks good right now.

My question is, I want to install SP1 on my exchange server, but I have gotten mixed comments saying that I can not install SP1 on a 2008 server (witch I am not doing) but does the adprep make it imposable to install SP1 on the exchange server running on top of Windows 2003?

so, can I install SP1 on the 2003 server even after the domain was prepped for a 2008 AD updates?

I hope this is understandable.
Thank you

Not at all. Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 CAN be used to patch an Exchange installation running atop a Windows Server 2003 x64 machine.

I think you are getting confused with another requirement of Exchange on Server 2008, which means that if you install Exchange on a Server 2008 machine, you can only install Exchange 2007 with SP1 or higher - Exchange 2007 RTM, 2003 or anything earlier are not supported, but this has nothing to do with your environment.
