try this on your 2010 server:

New-Mailbox -Arbitration -Name FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042 -UserPrincipalName FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042@default_accepted_domain

replace default_accepted_domain at the end with your domain

this is your first exchange server?
there was no 2010 existing before?
everything i have seen thus far points to an issue related to a 2010 install

Is Exchange 2010 gone, or does it still exist? If its still there what service pack and update rollup is it at? What version of Exchange 2013 are you attempting to install?

What is the full error message you are getting during installation?

I would look at this article here but mainly at these steps *only if* Exchange 2010 is still installed...

First...

Remove the FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042 e-mail account by using the ADSIEDIT tool. To do this, follow these steps:

    Click Start, click Run, type adsiedit.msc, and then click OK.
    Locate the Default Naming Context node, and then locate to the CN=Users container.
    Locate and then right-click the CN=FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042 container. Then, click Delete.

Then...

New-Mailbox -Arbitration -Name FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042 -UserPrincipalName FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042@<Default_Accepted_Domain>

Mainly fill in the "default accepted domain" with what yours is, and make sure that you run this in the Exchange Management Shell for Exchange 2010.

If you get a Syntax error then please post it here. I am also curious if this is a single domain design or do you have multiple domains under a single forest? Mainly because when you run schema and ad prep you should have the schema master local to the domain you are preparing or I have seen similar results..
