  • Cannot see any Network adapters under my new Hyper-V guest

    I have a similar problem. I cannot see any Network adapters (Virtual or physical) under my new Hyper-V guest (a W2K8 x86 full install). My host OS is also a W2K8 server which correctly identified my physical network adapter without needing any extra driver software. So I would assume my Guest VM which runs the same OS should also find either the Physical or the Virtual adapter. But under my "Network Connections", I do not see any adapter at all. I did try assigning either an external Virtual network adapter or an internal one. But in all cases, it does not appear under the Network Connections list. Am I doing something wrong in the setup?

    Here is my environment:
    Host: Win 2008 Server x64 Enterprise Full install.
    Network: One NIC (NVidia nForce gigabit - built-in)
    AMD QuadCode with 8GB RAM.

    Guest VM:
    Win 2008 Server x86 (Full install)
