I am going through the SBS Migration at the point to remove exchange from old server but get the error

YOu must be a member of the domain admins, schema admins and enterprise admins groups

I checked the admninistrator and it is a member of all, I try to use another account but it has to be the build in administrator account. Running into the same issue with the DCpromo

So when you went to check the enterprise admins at the root level of the domain, the accounts you are using are there correct?

You could always create a new account in AD called "migration" or "promo" and put it in Enterprise Admins and Schema Admins.  Enterprise Admins will trump all the other ones like domain admins for example.

In AD, using the Windows interface
Open Active Directory Users and Computers
In the console, click Users in the forest root domain
Active Directory Users and Computers/forest root domain/Users (or, click the folder that contains the user account).
In the details pane, right-click the user account that you want to add, and then click Properties
Click the Member Of tab, and then click Add.
In Enter the object names to select, type Enterprise Admins (or Schema Admins), and then click OK.

The problem was a DNS issue that cleaned up most of my problems with the domain transfer.
