Error 3221684229 when installing mailbox role of Exchange 2007 SP1 on Windows Server 2008 r2

I was installing a second Exchange 2007 Server to a Windows 2008 R2 Server and I hit this error when I was installing the Mailbox Role.  It turns out that because I was using Windows 2008 R2 or Windows 7 kernel the Mailbox Role requires you run the setup.exe in Compatibility Mode for Windows Vista Service Pack 2.

Right click the setup.exe and choose the Compatibility Option and then you can install as normal.
