Exchange 2007 error during Organization Prep

I received the following error message when attempting to install Exchange 2007 on a new 2008 Server installation ...

An error occurred when executing 'ldifde.exe' to import schema file 'I:\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostWindows2003_schema0.ldf'. Error code: 110. More details can be found in the error file 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Temp\ldif.err'.

The file "ldif.err" does not exist and the file "ldif.log" which does, contains no data (blank)

Active Directory services are installed and running and the Server is configured as a DC (the only Server in the domain).

Any assistance would be welcome.

Thank you.

Make sure the setup path is correct and copy the setup from DVD to hardisk and then run the setup again.
