I am installing Exchange 2010 in an enviroment where the DC is a 32bit version of 2003 Standard sp2. I need to prepare the schema and AD for install. I only have a 64bit ver. of Exchange and of course get the error "vaild command but not for this type of machine" What are my options here. So I can get this install completed.

No, Exchange is being installed on a new box with 64bit Server 2008 R2. Only the DC is on a 32bit platform.

are you sure that the OS is 64 not 32?

because this error will appear only if your OS 32 bit

As demazter has already said, run it from the Exchange server with "setup.com /PrepareSchema"

Or don't run it at all and let the exchange install do it for you :)
