I am running Server 2008 SP1 and am trying to install SBS 2008 as a virtual machine. I am using SBS 2008 RC2. After the install, I get the message "A network adapter must be installed, enabled and configured with TCP/IP"

I found some articles that did not help http://blogs.technet.com/virtualization/archive/2007/09/28/windows-server-2008-rc0-and-virtualization-ctp-faq.aspx

Step 24 I do not get a pop up. - http://blogs.microsoft.nl/tonykrijnen/archive/2008/06/30/step-by-step-installing-windows-sbs-2008-rc0-on-hyper-v.aspx

I found some articles about a choosing a legacy adapter but I don't see where I can choose that.

Right-click your VM then go to Settings then look for your current network connection then switch this over to the legacy network adapter

Thanks, my  mistake was not shutting down the VM first. After that I was able to change to a legacy adapter
