First of all Exchange 2007 can not be removed manually ever - had it been so easy MSFT would have come out with some KB article for it.

Secondly, it always necessary to read the exchange setup logs to understand what took place in the background (not only for errors but information in it is very vital)

If possible please attach the Exchange setup log here to understand your issue better.

Thanks.

I have had a similar problem.  Since EXCH2k7 is role-based I had to reinstall the role that was failing.  After that there were no problems with upgrade.

Exchange 2007 setups are always pretty weird - works for some - doesn't work for rest. :)
Trust me if Exchange 2007 decides it does not like you installing - it would keep on throwing some odd numbers which you might never had seen even in your school examinations.

So, its best to start off with setup logs and of course use other tools to decipher the meaning of those errors.
