Hyper-v Virtual Switch

I have a server 2012 running hyper v. I have a VM running with 2008. I want the VM to share the same network card but I cant seem to get the VM Nic to work. How should this be setup?

You create a Virtual Switch against which physical NIC you want, and select whether you want Private, Internal, or External.
Assign the virtual NIC on the VM to the Virtual Switch you configured.

Here are some screen shots if you need them:

You need to install the integration services on the virtual machine.

Create the virtual switch as External if you want to share the NIC between the virtual machines and the host, otherwise, create it as Private so, that only the virtual machines can use it.

The issue was something wrong with the OS VM. I reinstalled the OS and everything works now. Thanks for the help.
