I have installed Failover clustering on a windows 2008 without realizing that Exchange was already installed.  Now when I try to remove Failover cluster, it crashes exchange, but if I try to remove exchange, it won't let me because I have Failover Cluster installed.

Also, if I use the command line to remove the mailbox, it gives me the error: "Opening package 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\ Server\Mailbox\MSFTE.MSSI' failed. The system cannot find the file specified.  Error code is 2."

Any ideas that don't involve wiping the system?

I copied the msfte.msi file off of the cd and tried it again.  This time I got error code 3238230406 "cannot find the file"

Try coping the file in safe mode or in reconvery console mode.
put the file in C: drive first than copy in one the modes.

Remove/Reinstall Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are the steps to Properly remove and re-install the Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine For Exchange.

1. Stop the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer and the Microsoft Search (Exchange) services
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open text box, type Installer , and then click OK.
4. Right-click the Name column header, and then click More..
5. Select Subject and Click OK
6. Search through the Subject field until you find "Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange Setup v8.x.xxx.x". The x's denote what version is installed on the server.
7. Right-click the cached Windows Installer file that has the "Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange Setup v8.x.xxx.x" subject, and then click Uninstall.
8. After the uninstall process has completed, quit the Installer.
9. Run msiexec /i msfte.msi TARGETDIR="c:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server" .The TargetDir can change, but this is the default one, change it to whatever you are using. MSFTE.msi will add the "\Bin" to the path. After this completes make sure Microsoft.Exchange.Search.ExSearch.exe and msfte.dll are in the same folder. MSFTE.MSI can be found on the Exchange 2007 Setup CD (file:///\\\\Setup\\ServerRoles\\Mailbox) directory
10. Start Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer and the Microsoft Search (Exchange) services

then issue a full search engine rebuild with a

ResetSearchIndex.ps1 -force -all

that's all.

Thanks
Unfortunately the customer does not want to proceed any further so I will have to close this out since I have no way of testing the above solution

Thank you for your efforts
