windows 2008 R2.
Exchange 2010.

I tried installing exchange on a server - now i want to remove it to put it on a different box and keep that server as a DC.

I cannot uinstall exchange. I get errors when i tried to install it.
screenshots:
1) errors created when trying to uninstall it
2) console cannot open (to troubleshoot suggestions provided step 1) - it stays on that screen
3) screenshot of exchange services running

any tool out there? I want to completely remove it from my DC. Reformatting not an option anymore.
