I was trying to install Exchange 2013 SP1 on a freshly installed Windows 2016 server when I received an error running the Exchange 2013 readiness checks.
The Windows component Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra isn’t installed on this computer and needs to be installed before Exchange Setup can begin.

When clicking on the link for more information I received the most helpful information “Sorry but we haven’t added content for this Exchange 2013 readiness check yet”.
After double checking everything I found out Microsoft Exchange 2013 is not support on Windows Server 2016. Windows Server 2016 only supports Microsoft Exchange 2016 CU3 (and presumably later).
Unfortunately there are only 2 options. Downgrade your Windows 2016 licence to Windows 2012 R2, as I did, or go for Exchange 2016 CU3 .
I hope this post helps someone find a quick answer to the issue rather than trawling the internet for hours.
Let me know if there are any other workarounds or if this helped you in the comments below,
