When trying to install IIS7 for my Exchange 2010 I get
Installation failed with no error message. Then told I need to reboot to reverse changes.

I have done what this article states but no luck. I am 100% stuck. It never tells me though that I need to reinstall like that article states.

if it is possible I would format the server, I wouldn't install exchange on a server that has issues even before exchange is installed. too risky for me in a prod environment
