VMware guest and win2008 64-bit

Posted on 2009-04-30

I installed win2008 64-bit OS on a vmware guest and also installed the vmware tools. The OS fails to see the network cards. The device manager shows ethernet controller(with yellow sign)indicating that there is no driver. I also tried to uninstall and then reboot the OS. Did not help.
Can anyone suggest as to what I might be missing?

    Actually I was able to fix this by doing these:
    Shutdown VM-->edit settings to remove the ethernet card-->power up-->shutdown VM-->Add card(e1000) again..Power up.
