During the installation I'm getting an error message as follows:

Active Directory does not exist or cannot be contacted.

Are there any step by step instructions on this specific topic somewhere?

Which version of windows?  I used this guide, very simple and you use the powershell (copy and paste) to install all the services required.  Make sure you also get your Microsoft filter pack 2.0 installed also prior to installation.

I did not see any mention of the first error which refers to not being able to find the Active Directory server which in my case is also a Windows Server 2008.

Does anyone know how to solve for:

Active Directory does not exist or cannot be contacted.

Where can I get instructions specific to this issue?

did you follow the guide posted?  That long powershell command installs all the roles and features required to install exchange
