virtual network issue with Hyper-V

Hi All,

I got 2 gigabit network cards, and they are recognized by the physical server (2008 64bit hyper-v) they get dhcp ip from my router. (no drivers needed)

But when I create a virtual network and assign it to a VM, they are not recognized inside the VM.

I accepted all the default when creating an external virtual network and choose the nic card I wanted to use.

Try to feed it the cd with the drivers, it didnt take.

Am I missing something?

Here is the link for my NIC

Thanks much

you will need integration services (hyper-v synthetic drivers) inside VM for all your extrernal hardware (scsi adapters, nics, etc)

It works like a charm.

It was not necessary to install the integration services on Windows 7 32bit.
