My fresh SP2010 prerequisites and installation went well. Later while running the SharePoint Product Configuration for the first time, at Step# 8, while creating Sample Database, it gave me this error:

Configuration of SharePoint Products failed.  Configuration must be performed in order for this product to operate properly.  To diagnose the problem, review the extended error information located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS\PSCDiagnostics_2_9_2010_17_44_33_362_561052642.log, fix the problem, and run this configuration wizard again.

Has anyone faced this problem?

You need to install the WCF hotfix KB976462. Download it here...

And please add some more memory to your virtual host, 2GB is bare minimum.

Thanks Wictor. I downloaded and installed this patch. As I don't have much physical RAM, i increased the Virtual Memory. After this I re-ran the Configuration Wizard and it went through (although took long time). Thanks for your help. –  kamleshrao Feb 14 '10 at 9:23
