Running the very cool Ubuntu and trying to setup VMWare-Server to host Vista.
If you cannot for the life of you get the networking to connect to your LAN – simply add the following to your vm’s .vmx file – using these steps:
- locate your vmx file e.g vista.vmx (within the folder that you store your virtual machines in)
- scroll down to just under the line Ethernet0.present = “TRUE”
- add, on a new line, ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000”
- restart /etc/init.d/vmware
et voila !!
worked a treat for me – from the original thread
