Export it with private key from Godaddy and then import it to Exchange.

Follow the advise in the following article and repair your certificate to add the private key to the certificate and then you will be able to enable it:

The steps are similar - basically just get the certificate Serial Number and then run the certutil command adding the serial number and job done.

Did you get the serial number in the format "aa bb cc dd ee ff gg"

The use the command from an elevated command prompt:

certutil -repairstore my "aa bb cc dd ee ff gg" ?

Shouldn't be any need to get a new certificate at all.
