Sharepoint 2010 Configuration Wizard Error: System.ServiceProcess.TimeoutException: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.

While creating a VPC, I installed Windows Server 2008 R2, Visual Studio 2010 RC  and then the Sharepoint 2010 RC.  I stumbled upon the following error while running the Sharepoint 2010 Configuration Wizard “Error: System.ServiceProcess.TimeoutException: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.” It occurred twice on Configuration task 5 of 10; the first time when the status was “Successfully installed service instance: Sharepoint Server Search.”

In order to fix this error, I opened the Services, changed the log on of the service named “Sharepoint Server Search V14” from local service to local system and started the service manually while the wizard was still running.

The second time when the status was “Successfully installed service instance: Sharepoint Foundation Search”.

This time I changed the log on of the service named “Sharepoint Foundation Search V4” from local service to local system and started the service manually.

Afterwards, the configuration wizard completed successfully.
