Where are the database and log paths located? Are the drives they are on mounted? For example if they are on iSCSI LUNs are those LUNs available?

Somehow Database paths got misconfigured

Make sure that all folders exist that are given with the error and re-create it by hand, then run the setup again this will complete the Mailbox role install.

OR

Remove the Database from EMC and if you are not able to remove it than Go to Adsiedit.msc…>Configuration…>Services…>Microsoft Exchange…>ORG…>First Admin Group…>Exchange Admin Group…>Database…> Check the name “Mailbox Database 1315546459'¿ and delete it. After deleting it from here open EMC and you should not get that error message.

If those databases were never used and you wish to remove them then you can go to configuration partition in adsiedit and visit below path.

CN=Services,CN=Microsoft Exchange=CN=YourOrg,CN=Exchange Administrative Group\CN=Databases

over here it will list all the exchange 2010 datbases. You can delete the one's which are giving you the error while uninstalling exchange and try the uninstallation again.
