i am using windows 7 home premium and installed sharepoint 2010 enterprise version. i have tried all the necessary steps for clean installation. after successful installation and configuration of products, the sharepoint default page is not loading nor giving any errors. i have tried central administration also and same is the case with it. i have already installed all possible prerequisites of it but all in vain. please help me with it.

What is in the SharePoint logs? Typically installed in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS Look for Unexpected – TroyBramley Jul 3 '12 at 10:11
Their are bunch of logs in it. i don't know about these. i have installed/uninstalled 2-3 times sharepoint. and i think it may contain previous logs as well! well their are some logs name PowerShell_ConfigurationDiagnostics, PSCDiagnostics, and some with my username as well – IConfused Jul 3 '12 at 10:20
I would open up IIS and check to make sure the site is listed there, and try using the "browse this website" link – Brandon Jul 3 '12 at 16:57
Site is clearly listed in IIS6Manager. when i browses from there nothing shows up nor gives any error for sharepoint default, sharepoint central management. but only gives error of "HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable." for when i browse for sharepoint web service i have installed sharepoint server with standalone in my system. do i have to install any other like sharepoint foundation on some other system as well to make it run??? – IConfused Jul 4 '12 at 9:55
