Problems with SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 Migration

I am migration from an existing SBS 2003 server, to a brand new out-of-the-box SBS 2008 server. I have done all the pre-requisites on the source server, ran the migration tool, fixed any/all issues that arose, and started the SBS 2008 install in migration mode. I get to the point where the destination server (SBS 2008) checks the source server (SBS 2003) to make sure it is compatible/ready for the migration, and it keeps saying i have not run the migration tool on the source server (See Here)
I re-ran the migration tool on the source server, again, made sure to click 'Install Updates' (although i know i did the first time), and it completed with no errors or problems. I rebooted the source server, because it asked me to, and after it came up, i clicked 'Check Again' on the destination server, and it STILL says i have not run the migration tool. What is going on?
Thanks in advance.

So, you are using the SP2 Source Tool on the old server?

There should be some log files on the old server relating to the utility - can you post them?

I eventually gave up and called Microsoft. It was a problem with DCOM on the source server. They finally figured it out after about 6 hours. I cant remember what eactly they did to fix it as they did so much.
