You can remove this entry using an adsiedit from a Windows 2003 member server.

- Open Adsiedit.msc
- Select Properties from [Configuration,DC=x,DC=x]
- Lookup WellKnownObjects and click Edit *(the value should show ;; ; on windows 2003, on Windows 2008 you see the full value but are unable to edit it)
- Click on [ Add ] which adds a blank line, making the value change to <not set>
- Click on [ Apply ] to save your changes

After this you should be able to run setup /prepareAD.

Updated path. this worked for my case:

- Open Adsiedit.msc
- Expand [Configuration,DC=x,DC=x]
- Expand[CN=Services]
- Select Properties from [CN=Microsoft Exchange]
- Lookup otherWellKnownObjects and click Edit *(the value should show ;;;;; ; on windows 2003, on Windows 2008 you see the full value but are unable to edit it)
- Click on [ Add ] which adds a blank line, making the value change to <not set>
- Click on [ Apply ] to save your changes

after I saved configuration I was able to install SP1 for Exchange 2010 RTM and reset my OWA virtual directory.
