I am tryging to PXE boot Windows7 image from WDS server into VMware virtual PC. Vmware comes up with error who tells me I am not using the right NIC drivers. (see image) NIC Error. The Nic in the Host PC is Intel. Do I need to use the Intel NIC drivers or NIC drivers for Vmware ?

Set up your virtual machine with the "E1000" Nic type - most install images will support that.

Good Luck

If you are on VMware workstation go into edit setting, remove your existing nic, add a new nic - I think it should give you a choice on what nic types you can use.

If you don't see E1000 as one of the choices, change the vm type to be 64 bit windows and try again. Once you have it added you can change the vm options for os type back to whatever you are using.

From the manual (http://www.vmware.com/pdf/ws65_manual.pdf) pp. 276

"To add virtual network adapters
1 Select the virtual machine to which you want to add the adapter.
2 Choose VM > Settings.
3 On the Hardware tab, click Add.
4 Select Network Adapter and click Next.
5 Select the network type to use.
6 (Optional) If you select Custom, choose the VMnet network to use from the
drop-down menu.
Although VMnet0, VMnet1, and VMnet8 are technically available in this list, they
are usually used for bridged, host-only, and NAT configurations, respectively. You
must perform another procedure to make them available for use in custom
configurations. Choose one of the other VMnet switches.
7 Click Finish.
The new adapter is added.
8 Click OK to save your configuration."

From the same location you can remove your old adapter.
Good Luck
