1. Goto run and type "ncpa.cpl" without quote.
2. Select the network of your choice or the active one ,may be you have one so make a right click and select the properties.
3. Select "Intenet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and you will see the gridout tab of properties will get highlighted.
4. Click on the properties.
5. select "Use the following IP address" and now you can put the desired IP, subnet, gateway and DNS.
6. CLick on OK and again OK.

For sometime it will search and will make the selection. You may also choose to verify the IP before implementing.
One most important thing to remember if its a migration from Physical to Virtual may be NIC entry will be there as hidden device and that may not allow to change. However thats all together a different story.

If you have a DHCP reservation for the old IP, you will need to edit that

If the server is doing DHCP and DNS then you will need to update those services with the new IP address.
