VMWare, NIC in PassThru mode

I added a new NIC, and marked it as PassThru

Then I added it as a PCI device to the VM

Then I 'Removed' the existing "Network Adapter 1" from the VM

Then I started up the VM

On the Windows VM, I had previously had a network set up.  Ping no longer worked, so I tried to set up a new connection

However, when I try to set up a new connection, the machine responds that no networking hardware is detected.

How should I proceed to fix this ?

Thanks

check device manager first and make sure it is detecting a network adapter, then scan for hardware changes.

do you have the device enabled and drivers for your new nic?

Yes, all drivers are there.  I can easily connect that NIC to a Network and vSwitch and make it work

How do I check to see if the device is enabled ?

Device Manager in the OS

is this physical nic connected to the network?
