Never mind, I worked through it. Figured it out..
For future users, I installed joomla,, then uninstalled it except for the database, then I did an install again using the "Import existing install" added the correct sql admin info , made sure the paths were correct, finished the install. I then navigated through my browser, the new install path, it gave me the joomla install console, after a couple of clicks I was up and running without a problem.
Hope to never have another problem again,,
