Please refer to the log file for more details.
Can you remove the driver and try again?
This is a driver on VMware's black list. So you can't find it and run it. The operation you have already done is not supported.
I'm still a newbie of the vmware products. But I want to learn. I'm trying to customize a VMware ESXi image adding the tulip driver inside the ESXi-7.0.0-15843807-standard iso image file because I want to install it in a Hyper-V VM. I've got the same error appeared here. I would like to know the reasons why it has been blacklisted. thanks.
You've already got an answer at Re: Vmware ESXI within Hyper-v (server 2012) networking issue
Two ways to workaround this that I can think of, are that either MS provides an alternative virtual network adapter that's recognized by ESXi, or that someone re-writes the net-tulip driver to make it compatible with current ESXi versions.
