Exchange 2010 Setup Transport Hub role error

I'm trying to install Exchange 2010 and when it gets to the Hub Transport Role it errors out with the following error:

Hub Transport Role

The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
          if ($RoleStartTransportService)
                start-SetupService -ServiceName MSExchangeTransport
        " was run: "Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach status 'Running' on this server.".

Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach status 'Running' on this server.

I initially had IPv6 installed, but the protocol was unchecked. After reading an article I checked it, rebooted and tried again and it failed with the same error.  Does anyone have any other ideas?

open regedit and browse to HKLocalMachine\Software\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\V14\HubTransportRole and delete the Action and Watermark keys.
In CMD> cd to exchange installation dir and run /ps /p /pad
Then if the above ar OK use the /DoNotStartTransport parameter to specify that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service won't start when Setup completes:  /r:H /DoNotStartTransport
Restart the server when setup is complete and check in event log for any Active Direcory errors in the event log
You can install then the other roles with the GUI

Found out the issue. The issue was that there was no local DC at the site. I forced it to another site by changing the registry and it worked.
