Recently we ran Setup.com /preparead on a Exchange 2010 server to recreate an arbitration mailbox and got the below error.
A reboot from a previous installation is pending. Please restart the system and rerun setup.
To Resolve this do the following
- Open Regedit
- Navigate to HKLMCurrentControlSetControlSessionManager
- Delete PendingFileRenameOperations String
After you have done that you can run setup.com /preparead with no issues
