Hi All,  

need Help

I have a windows 2008 DataCenter Server.   I created a VM for windows 2003 Server.

When i start the VM (2003 server) I do not see any Ethernet Controllers, Network Cards etc. and therefore can not connect the 2003 server to the network.

I have attached some screen shots.

Img1 - HyperV Manager - with the VM i created
Img2 - Virtual Network Manager with specifics of the Virtual Network.
Img3 - Settings for the VM where i have selecte the virtual network
Img4 - Device Manger on the Virtual Machine showing that there is NO Ethernet/Network Devices - the Unknown Device is not a network device.

I am guessing I dont have something setup correctly in the settings for the Virtual network.

I would appreciate any help.
