the registry key that verifies SBS 2003 SP1 does not exist, the SP1 was installed and the Best pratices does not identify the need to have SBS SP1 installed.  Is there a way to have this registry key added.

You can simply add the key yourself. This works. I've done several SBS 2003 -> 2008 migrations and I've had to do this a few times.

Make sure you also run the Exchange 2007 readiness check in the exchange BPA.
