I have tried to reinstall from both orig RTM install and SP1 install w/ no luck.

Hi,

Try running Windows update, restart the machine
Make sure power shell is installed

Follow the above paper to prepare AD for exchange ;

Go with the Exchange 2007 SP1 Media ; try to copy the contents of the dvd and run setup off a partition.

Hope this helps

solved this internally...
here is what I did.. main issue CAS role was inop: could not access owa; could not access any iis sites. I tried to use the remove-OWAvirtualdirectories etc.. in ex mgmt shell w/ no luck. tried to remove/reinstall IIS w/ no luck.
In last good system state the system's HT was operational the CAS was not. IIS & CAS were removed.
I shutdown the server (which was a VM running w/i VMWare ESX). In AD I reset the computer object.
I created a new VM w/ same name and IP as the old server.
I added the new server to the domain
I ran the following cmd to recreate the HT on the new server:
setup.com /m:recoverserver /r:HT /dc:domaincontroller
once this successfully installed I ran the following cmd to install the CAS:

setup.com /m:install /r:CA /dc:domaincontroller
this also was successful.
I am now able to access OWA.
