Hi Guys,

I`m new to vmware and of course windows server 2012,
I`ve installed windows server 2012 on my VMWare 10, I used a ISO file for the installation.

The installation is completed but i have problem with drivers. in the device manager am missing the current drivers for windows server 2013- Base system device, Multimedia audio controller, SCSI Controller, Also i do not see network on the list, but i know its not there, because i have no network.

Can someone please let me know what am missing?
I`m really not sure

thanks

Did you install VMware Tools?


see my EE Article, Step by Step Tutorial Instructions with Screenshots

in vmware workstation, go to VM -> Install VMWare Tools
then, you can use Andrew's link above - start from about half way down the page where the screenshots show the installation in Windows 2012.  the article is primarily for ESX (different vmware hypervisor) but the tools installation is basically identical
