1.     Created New Site with defaults for most.

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPUsageImportJobDefinition (ID 54f1a2a7-9981-47a9-8cae-f27c5664469a) threw an exception. More information is included below.    Access to the path 'C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server Extensions14LOGS' is denied.

Formatted box,  Server 2008R2 restarted  ran DCPROMO first, then VS2010 (without express), SQL 2008 R2, SP 2010, SP2010 designer. 
Seems that the Workgroup setup  does not play well with Sharepoint 2010. So remember if you are using a development box you want to make sure it is a doman controller.
