Ive posted the error that is keeping us at a standstill, and also a little history below the error...
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); install-ExchangeSchema -LdapFileName ($roleInstallPath + "Setup\Data\"+$RoleSchemaPrefix + "schema0.ldf")" was run: "There was an error while running 'ldifde.exe' to import the schema file 'C:\Windows\Temp\ExchangeSetup\Setup\Data\PostWindows2003_schema0.ldf'. The error code is: 8206. More details can be found in the error file: 'C:\Users\administrator.TKA\AppData\Local\Temp\ldif.err'".

Just a little history...
We had a 2003 domain controller with exchange 2007 running on it, it was slow so we decided to upgrade. We bought a new server, installed 2008 R2 on it, installed Exchange 2010 and also had it acting as a domain controller. We had nothing but problems the past 2 days so my IT freelancer helping me transferred the roles back to the 2003 domain controller and we installed 2012 Server R2 onto the server, we then installed 2013 Exchange, or at least tried to. It still shows our old domain controller that we overwrote with the new 2012 as being active.
He says the only was is to delete every user and their profiles, that would take ages, does anyone know what can be done to help us fix this exchange 2013 install with the error we are getting above? I dont have another server.
Right now we have the 2003 domain controller and the new 2013 server with exchange 2013 running on it.
HELP, ANYONE... HELP...
