My NIC isn't recognized within the Windows XP SP 3 installation within my Server 2008 Hyper-V installation; when I try to install the correct driver I get the message shown in the attached screenshot, "Please shutdown and plug Realtek PCI card to complete the installation".
I know that this is the correct driver, since it is the exact same driver that I used when I installed Windows XP on the same computer (but on a different partition).
Also, within the Server 2008 Hyper-V Windows XP installation, I have used the Add Hardware Control Panel wizard, but this install method doesn't work either. I choose to browse to the location of where the hardware driver is, and the I get the message shown in the screenshot "HyperV-XP-NIC-installation." I have also tried the three available built in drivers, but none of these work either.
Also, I have taken a look at the Hyper-V settings, but I don't see anything unusual within the settings that would need to be changed so that I can install my network card.
