2008R2 Virtual Machine refuses to install virtual NIC

Been working on getting trunking and multiple VLANs setup on vSwitches, check the link below if you want to see that in detail:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_26939108.html.

But now I have a 2008R2 VM that refuses to add vNICs anymore and an XP VM too.  You add one in the configuration and it refuses to install it, just says it can't find the drivers if you try to install it with device manager and won't install automatically like it used to.
