I am trying to get the latest Intel driver package installed on a Win10 VM to do some testing with the VLAN feature. However, the installer reports that there is no Intel NIC installed, despite it the vNIC being identified as an 82574L. Anyone know of a workaround?
What is the virtual NIC type in the VM hardware? (you may need to look in the VMX file to confirm)
Not sure how your query for additional info got marked as the correct answer, or where my reply to your message went.
But anyways, it shows in the vmx as e1000e, as I'd expect.
What does Device Manager (in the guest OS) show regarding network adapters?
#metoo maybe popular in twitter - here I would rather suggest to use #thats-my-vmx or #here-is-my-log
or if you are really cool maybe even #this-is-my-problem
VMWare's E1000e NIC is 82574L. Note that Intel's drivers won't install on this NIC if you're running Windows 10 (even on a physical computer with 82574L), so you can't use multiple VLANs with it.
