Cannot install Sharepoint 2010 on Windows SBS 2011 server.

I am attempting to migrate the old http://companyweb from our old Windows SBS 2008 server to our new SBS 2011 server. However, Windows SBS 2011 did not properly install Sharepoint 2010 on the first boot. This leaves me to manually install Sharepoint 2010. When I attempt to run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard and enter in my database details (Using SQL Server 2008 R2), the process chugs along until step 3 where I receive the following error:

Failed to create the configuration database.

An exception of type System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception was thrown. Additional exception information: The group already exists


I've looked this up and found that people who receive this error are able to move forward after renaming the "WSS_WPG" group in AD. I have done this and am still receiving this error. What else should I try?

Thank you

Great! Thank you! I needed to rename ALL of the WSS_* groups in Active Directory, but the configuration completed successfully.
Glad it worked out.
