Exchange 2003 upgrade to 2010 Coexistence not supported

Hi, ive been searching for the better part of a day to a solution for this:

"Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:01:02

Client Access Role Prerequisites
Failed

Error:
Coexistence between Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Server versions older than Exchange Server 2007 SP2 in the same Active Directory Site is not supported.
Recommended Action: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=30939&l=en&v=ExBPA.4&id=fb049413-b962-4973-a1b2-a62a81ef8691

Im trying to install exchange 2010 into my 2003 network, from what i have read there should not be a problem.

My existing exchange server is 2003 SP2.

There must be an Exchange 2007 server (live or failed) that does not have Service Pack 2 insalled.
