We had the same issue...

try running this:

psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force

You have to analyze the log file starting with 'Upgrade' on the [ERROR] text. Does these messages make sense to you (your environment)?

@Chillyago You'll most likely find this file at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS and it will be called something like Upgrade-20110630-130832-446-error.log. –  Alex Angas Jul 2 '11 at 2:53
    
The above snippet is from the upgrade log. –  ChiliYago Jul 5 '11 at 23:13
    
As seen from the layout of the part of the log, this is not from the file starting with 'Upgrade...' logfile, but from the logfile starting with 'PSCDiagnostics...' (the link from the Configuration failed window of the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard). Can you please check for the 'Upgrade..' log. –  Anita Boerboom Jul 6 '11 at 6:16

Our experience here is that trying to do SharePoint 2010 on Win7, while technically possible is more or less a minefield where things like this pop up all the time. Rather than spend even more time troubleshooting the Win7 option we ended up just putting SharePoint 2010 on virtual machines running Windows Server and have had excellent results with that.

I realize that this doesn't really help you solve your problem now but it might be something to consider in the future.
