Can't Reinstall Exchange 2010 on 2003 Enviroment, Cant Create Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)

I Installed Exchange 2010 on my 2003 domain, Sucessfully. Then Had Hardware Failure on the 2008R2 Box. Had to Reinstall that Box.
I Did Follow: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555846 and Removed the Orphan 2008R2 Domain Controller.
I also Removed the Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT) using ADSIEDIT

I have now attempted to Reinstall Exchange 2010 on my Domain and i Get the Following:

The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); if (&server -eq &null){new-exchangeserver-DomainController &RoleDomainController -Name &RoleNetBIOSName}" was run: "Could not find the default Administrative Group 'Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)

Could not find the detault Administrative Group 'Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)'

I then Read a Forum on msexchange that told me i need to Run D:\setup.com /p (preparead)
and that it will Recreate the Administrative Group??
However when i try run D:\setup.com /p I get the following:

" Performing Microsoft Exchange Server Prerequisite Check

    Organization Checks              ......................... FAILED
 Setup is going to prepare the organization for Exchange 2010 by using 'Setup /P
repareAD'. No Exchange 2007 server roles have been detected in this topology. Af
ter this operation, you will not be able to install any Exchange 2007 server rol
     Setup encountered a problem while validating the state of Active Directory:
 The Active Directory organization configuration version (13214) is higher than
Setup's version(12640). Therefore, PrepareAD can't be executed.

The Exchange Server setup operation did not complete. Visit http://support.micro

try to install from Exchange 2010 SP1 not from the RTM dvd

StarrateITAuthor Commented:
I am busy trying to aquire the Media DVD with SP1 Intergrated as this is an MS action pack license and Disc, and Microsoft havnt released an Exchange SP1 Disc with the Action Pack Yet.
So i might have to create my own ISO.
Do you know of any software that i can use to intergrate SP1 into Exchange RTM?
