Windows Server 2000 NIC on a 2008 R2 Hyper-V won't start

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Hyper-V. On this server I have a Windows Server 2000 virtual running. In the settings of this virtual I have one virtual network adapter assigned to the appropriate physical NIC. When I log on to the virtual server I do not have any network adapters configured under the Device Manager.

I ran the Integration Services Setup Disk several times with no success. I have tried to install the Microsost Virtual Machine Bus Network Adapter, but it comes back installed 'This device cannot start. (Code 10).

How can I successfully install a NIC card on this Windows Server 2000 virtual?

In the VM Config, are you using a Legacy Network Adapter or a Network Adapter?  2000 is OLD - I don't think the Network Adapter works.  You should use the Legacy Network Adapter.

I was using the Network Adapter. I tried removing that adapter and then adding a Legacy Network Adapter. No luck. I'm still getting the same results. I then tried to recreate the entire virtual using the existing .vhd file and initially creating the Legacy Network Adapter. Still no luck. Same results.

Can you post a screenshot of device manager and the VM config?

I was able to get the Legacy Network Adapter to work. After running the scan for new hardware from device manager and installing/updating the drivers and the integration tools the adapter finally came online and started working.

Thank you for your help with this one
