    No Internet Connection, AMD.WinXP.nforce4

    Juukamen Lurker

      I'm using Kubuntu 7.04 and I've recently installed vmware-player and managed to install windows xp. I've gathered some files from the net and used that, as my config file also, it's in the end of this post.

       

      I'm having problems on installing the drivers for my network controller, I'm using the nForce4 chipset and every time I'm trying to install it it just quits and it's annoying.

      Ideas are welcome on what to try doing, but here is my bootup config file.

       

      #!/usr/bin/vmware

      config.version = "8"

      virtualHW.version = "3"

      memsize = "512"

      MemAllowAutoScaleDown = "FALSE"

       

      ide0:0.present = "TRUE"

      ide0:0.filename = "20GB.vmdk"

      ide1:0.present = "TRUE"

      ide1:0.fileName = "windows.iso"

      ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image"

      ide1:0.autodetect = "TRUE"

      ide1:0.startConnected = "TRUE"

       

      floppy0.fileType = "file"

      floppy0.fileName = "cdboot1.img"

      floppy0.startConnected = "FALSE"

       

      usb.present = "TRUE"

      usb.autoConnect.device0 = ""

       

      sound.present = "TRUE"

      sound.virtualDev = "es1371"

       

      displayName = "Windows XP Pro"

      guestOS = "winxppro"

      nvram = "WindowsXPPro.nvram"

      MemTrimRate = "-1"

      ide0:0.redo = ""

       

      ethernet0.present = "TRUE"

      ethernet0.virtualdev = "vmxnet"

      ethernet0.addressType = "generated"

      ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:13:d3:9c:3c:88"

      ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"

      ethernet0.connectionType = "bridged"

       

      tools.syncTime = "TRUE"

      checkpoint.vmState = ""

      tools.remindInstall = "TRUE"

       

       

      uuid.action = "create"

      uuid.location = "56 4d 2f b3 92 30 32 fa-a6 b4 7f 1f a7 97 14 27"

      uuid.bios = "56 4d 2f b3 92 30 32 fa-a6 b4 7f 1f a7 97 14 27"

       

      the problem is to get the driver to detect the network card, and that ain't easy.

       

      Kind Regards
