We are in the process of installing Exchange 2013 into our environment.  The readiness check runs, but indicates an error regarding Exchange 2010 not having SP3 installed and naming a server which no exists in the AD organization.  It appears that my predecessor had installed 2010 at one point (we are currently on 2007) for testing and did not uninstall it properly. Is there anyway to get around the error and continue with the install?

Does the server appear in EMC on your existing Exchange 2010 servers? If so you could recover install the server and then remove it correctly.
Otherwise it is probably a single reference somewhere in adsiedit that needs to be removed.

You cannot bypass the issue, you need to find the entry that is tripping the installer up.
