Sharepoint 2010 configuration wizard error


I have installed a sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008 datacenter edition. When I run the sharepoint configuration wizard, I receive the error in the photo.

It appears that there is an issue with the Search Service provisioning.  Ensure that search is installed correctly, and can start correctly and try to run the configuration again.  This appears to be a common issue if you are installing a "stand-alone" version on a server that is also acting as a domain controller.

Well, as far as i can understand from this link , I have to do a complete installation. Do you know, what I have to do for a complete installation in the same server?

Thanks in advance!
Couple Questions:
Is the server also a domain controller?  
Are you using Domain or local Farm Accounts?
Is this a development / test server or going to be a production environment?

If this is a Dev environment, look at:

1) This is a domain controller

2) I am using a single server with a domain, no local farm accounts.

3) This will be our workplace, so it's production environment.
Follow the instructions here on your buildout.  Make sure the account you are using to install and the account you use during the configuration has enough rights.
