I have exchange 2010 installed on server 2008 standard.  Our systemmailbox, discoverymailbox, federation objects were curropted.  So we deleted the objects and tried to run "setup.com /preparead".  It keeps erroring out saying theres a pending restart, so we tried to restart and its doing the same thing.  Heres the error logs:
