I setup my first vmware vmsphere esxi 5 server. the interesting thing to this setup in my opinion, is because vmware is SO picky about the hardware, and my pc has an intel mobo, i used vmware player to create a vmware vmsphere server. i did this because i have win7 home premium on my pc, and didn't want to loose my personal stuff to vmware, also, i use my pc daily for emails and such. So to experiment with vmsphere esxi 5, i run the virtual vmsphere server and then i configure it with vmware vmsphere client. using the client i setup a virtual window xp home edition pc. it works fine, however, it doesn't detect my sound card.
however, out of curiosity, using vmware player, i used the same copy of windows xp home edition, and the player detects everything fine, and works perfectly, i didn't have to get any drivers.
so on the vsphere XP virtual machine, i tried getting the windows XP home edition drivers for the sound for my computer's mobo, but it doesn't work. any ideas how to get the sound to work?
