One of my VMware virtual machine network connection stops working. the nic card disappeared from the control panel, but when i go to the device manager, i can see it and it says that the devices is working. I've tried removing and reinstalling the NIC card, but still no luck. Before I delete the VM, does anyone have any suggestion on how I can get the network portion working so I can transfer some files out (about 2GB of data). I don't want to lose it, but it seems like there is no other method. I tried going into safe mode, but it kept rebooting the VM. I tried to boot from a windows 2003 cd and i'm not able to get to the boot selection screen. it does not respond to my keyboard entry no matter how fast I push it.
