    More information required. What OS are you installing onto? Is it a DC or a member server? Did you fully remove the previous installation of Exchange? After the format, did you give this server the same name?

        What was Exchange installed on before? How did you remove it? Did you verify that it was correctly removed?

            So you didn't uninstall Exchange? That'll be your problem then. Exchange is not just an application - it integrates itself into AD. To remove it properly, you need to go through the proper procedure, otherwise you end up where you are now - as if the previous server failed.

                Under the Configuration container, drill down into CN=Services. I believe you have to delete CN=Microsoft Exchange, or at least any references in there to the server in question.

                Naturally, you already have a backup that you have tested and know you can restore from, but take another one immediately before you make any changes like this too.

                  There are no manual removal instructions for Exchange 2007.
                  If Exchange was on the machine before then you should not have just formatted the machine. You need to remove Exchange correctly using add/remove programs.

                  Do a disaster recovery installation of Exchange on a machine with the same name as the original machine. Once complete then use add/remove programs to remove Exchange correctly.
