Sharepoint 2010 foundation configuration failed. How to undo that?

I am trying to install it on a server that has the following:
WSUS
iis7
Hyper-v manager

I noticed that it installed ii6 manager. Should I make a virtual machine and install it there?

Yes, you can install SharePoint Foundation 2010 in virtual machine.

See the links below.

I was asking if I should, in case it caused any conflict with the previously mentioned components. I rather not if it doesn't.

It is installed now but the configuration wizard returns "Failed to create the configuration database.
An exception of type System.Security.Cryptography.CryptographicException was thrown. Additional Exception information: The data is invalid."

How do I succeed at creating that configuration database?

Manually installing SQL and advanced did it but couldn't finish the farm configuration. It took me to a web page with the address server/default port...farm config. On IE I got asked for credentials.. I put the ones I used but the same screen keeps coming back, sometimes it disappears leaving a blank page.
