In the Exchange-server @ registry key under
MSExchangeSA\Parameters\ServerName and LogDirectory and LogPermissions are there?
If not, you need to create the missing registry key then attempt to start the Services

Check the msExchDataPath attribute of the server object see if it's pointing to the correct location.

Open ADSIEdit.
Expand Configuration, Services, Microsoft Exchange, <Your ORG>, Administrative
Groups, <Your Administrative Group>, Servers, <Your Server>
Right-click <Your Server> and pull up properties.
Select the attritue msExchDataPath. Change the location so that it points to the correct location for \exchsrvr (i.e. C:\Program Files\exchsrvr)
