SharePoint 2010 Beta | Too much errors

Before anything, check if you're doing everything right.
Here's a detailed howto instruction manual for SP installation.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869(office.14).aspx

As it says,
"If your developer workstation is set up with the Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 or Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system, to install SharePoint 2010 you only have to run the PrerequisiteInstaller.exe tool, which is included with SharePoint 2010 to install the prerequisites that SharePoint needs, and then run Setup.exe. However, you cannot use PrerequisiteInstaller.exe on Windows 7 or Windows Vista."

At this point, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 64bit SP2 Release 1 seems to be the best choice, for both host and virtual workstation solutions. Although R2 may work, it is not supported yet, so SP Foundation does install fine but SharePoint 2010 most possibly won't. Still, I describe some solutions to possible issues below.

W2008SERVER INSTALL PROCEDURE
- Install Prerequisites
- Install HotFix 971831 for R1 w/SP2 or R2
- Restart System
- Install SharePoint Server 2010 (Wait at configure wizard screen)
- Install Update 970315
- Configure Wizard
- OK


INSTALLING PREREQUISITES (NON-W2008SRV OPERATING SYSTEMS):
Extract OfficeServer.exe to c:\sharepointfiles
c:\SharePointFiles\OfficeServer /extract:c:\SharePointFiles

edit config.xml
c:\SharePointFiles\files\Setup\config.xml
Add this inside <configuration> tab
<Setting Id="AllowWindowsClientInstall" Value="True"/>
Save

run c:\SharePointFiles\Setup.exe

ERROR:
SharePoint Server 2010 configuration wizard crashes with error:
"argument not recognized: allowInsecureTransport"
SOLUTION;
- Open file
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\WebClients\Profile\client.config
- Remove all occurances (found 2 in my case) of
allowInsecureTransport="true"

ERROR:
After this fix, I also get "Failed to create sample data" check timeouts bla bla bla
SOLUTION:
Edit the same file, and change all "00:00:20" ocurrences to "00:01:20"
Save the file
cmd -> iisreset

This should give you a wider window of install time

ATTENTION

* Remember, VMs need lots of memory available (at least 512MB to avoid install errors)

* Some users have found that SharePoint Server or SharePoint Foundation won't install when Visual Studio 2010 is installed. You should try to remove any sync services installed by visual studio, or even Visual Studio itself if nothing else works.

* Windows 2008 Server 64bit R2 doesn't seem to supported yet. A hotfix is yet to come
