I am migrating from SBS 2003 to Windows Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010.  I am using the following instructions as base guide:

I am considering completly removing MS SharePoint and SQL off the SBS 2003 server before I migrate the server.  Reason is because we no longer use MS SharePoint or SQL and I want to have the server in its simplest form to increase the chances of a clean migration.  The first attempt at migration ended in disaster so I am being extra careful and addressing every possible issue.

Does this seem like an unnecessary move or a good plan?
