    Beta 2 - RC1 Upgrade and the NIC's

    Ron Woods Novice

      It appears that after I uninstalled Beta 2 and installed RC1, the Virtual Machine settings were still there and the machines I had running automatically started up. However, it seems the NIC's loose their settings and it creates a new Network Adapter and ghosts the old one. I had to use the Microsoft proceedure outlined here in Method 1 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/269155) to remove the old adapter to allow me to assign the ame IP configuration to the newly created NIC's. Now that I think about it, maybe it was duing the VMWare Tools upgrade that caused this. It happended to both of my Windows 2003 VM's, 1 64bit and the other 32bit. The host is  running Windows 2008 64bit Enterprise. Any idea as to why this would happen? Shouldn't it just pick up the current NIC's and leave them alone and simply update the driver?
