Bring the AD forest and domains to Windows Server 2003 Functional (or higher) levels.
Upgrade at least one Global Catalog domain controller in each AD Site that will house Exchange Server to Windows Server 2003 SP2 or greater.
Prepare a Windows Server 2008 (RTM or R2) x64 edition server for the first Exchange 2010 server.
Install the AD LDIFDE tools on the new Exchange 2010 server (to upgrade the schema).
Install any necessary prerequisites (WWW for CAS server role).
Run setup on the Exchange 2010 server, upgrade the schema, and prepare the forest and domains. (Setup runs all in one step or separate at the command line.)

Install Hub Transport role and configure per 2010 design.

Your suggestion will not work because the exchange 2007 is in Server 2003. Migration will be done to Exchange 2010 in 2008.

The link you gave me is Exchange 2007 in windows 2008, and Exchange 2010 is also in 2008

I could migrate 2003 active directory to 2008.  Then install the exchange 2010 in 2008.  The suggestion of AndyK167 is very good, I just need some refinement.

Thanks
