When you run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard for the first time, you get the following error:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database ‘master’.
This means that the domain account you specified to connect to the SQL Server does not have permissions to create the SharePoint config database. So go to your SQL Server and add the dbcreator role to your SharePoint Service account.
Please don’t make the SharePoint Service account elevated to domain admin level in AD or SysAdmin in SQL Server! It’s not necessary!
