i looked into log file SQLSetup0003_EXCHANGE_Core(Local) and found out this

Fatal Exception caught while installing package: "10"
        Error Code: 0x80070002 (2)
Windows Error Text: The system cannot find the file specified.

  Source File Name: sqlchaining\sqlprereqpackagemutator.cpp.

Looks like the setup which you are running does not has proper files. If you are installing it from cd or dvd, i recommended you to copy it on your local drive and then try installing from there.

Copy cd or dvd on hard drive then try to install. sometime files are not readable from cd and dvd.
If you are trying to install it from a network share, dont do that. Have a local copy and use that as source.

If not, the problem is in your installation source.
