In order to fix this it is actually pretty simple
1.  Go to start>run>adsiedit.msc
2.  Open default naming context

4.  Find the account that starts with CN=federated
5.  Right click on this and delete the object
6.  Run setup.com /prepareAD
7.  Run setup.com /prepareSchema
8.  Once you do this re-run setup and it will succeed
