I'm trying to test some network configurations for ESXi in a lab setting, my workstation is Fedora with KVM. I'm trying to install ESXi into a KVM virtual machine using the evaluation ISO I downloaded from vmware.com. I don't have any working vCenter or any other VMWare software running successfully. When I create my KVM virtual machine I specify an "e1000" device model for my network interface, but the ESXi installer does not seem to detect it: "No network adapters were detected. Either no network adapters are physically connected to the system, or a suitable driver could not be located. A third party driver may be required. ..."
Has anybody faced this before, and if so how did you resolve it?
