So I thought I did everthing right, but I guess I should of checked Exchange Blog. I installed Exchange 2013 on a Server 2012r2 box . Last night I found out about the issues with powershell 3 vs 4 on 2012r2. So I completly installed and update to CU2v2 minus mailbox moves and SSL. My question is I want to use the same VM and naming.
1. What issues will I have if I blow out this VM and reinstall on this server.
2. Do I need to do anything with AD prior.
3. Do I need to uninstall Exchange or can I just rebuild over the old VM config.
4. This is currently in coexsistance w 2007 no mailboxes where moved.

I am just going to install server 2012 and then re-install exchange 2013

Thanks in advance.

You should uninstall EX 2013. The other EX and AD is aware of the newly created EX 2013. If you revert your VM to a state previous to the EX 2013 install, both EX 2007 and AD will not be able to find it anymore. For this reason you should uninstall EX 2013.

No version of Exchange is (yet) certified for Windows 2012 R2.
Uninstall and reinstall on 2012.
