If you have installed a Windows 7 Beta as Guest operating system on a VMWare server, over a Windows XP Base, you might run into issue with Network adapter (..like i did).
If that’s the case, follow these steps.
1. Go to Windows 7 Guest OS VMWare directory on your file system, and open the .vmx file in a notepad.
2. Add the following line to the end of the file and save it.
ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000″.
3. Restart the Windows 7 Guest Operating system.
Windows 7 will recognize the network adapter and you should be able to connect to the internet.
