Yet another one with no more options than "Not Connected", "Internal Network" & "Shared Networking (NAT)". I cannot have my virtual NIC connected to a physical adapter. Here is what I have already done:
- Clean system boot (msconfig...)
- Un-installed my Kaspersky antivirus.
- Un-installed and then re-installed the new drivers for my NIC (Marvell Yukon 88E8057 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller)
- System BIOS and drivers are up-to-date (new Lenovo ThinkCenter PC)
- Deleted [user path]\Microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\options.xml
- The "Virtual PC network filter driver" is correctly checked in my adapter properties (I cycled checked it to be sure...)
- I added another physical Intel 1GB NIC in my system with no better results.
Here is a copy of the networking sections of the "new" options.xlm:
[...] <virtual_network id="0"> <id type="bytes">A485543708B74EE4B29C962FC6354D68</id> <gateway type="integer">0</gateway> <name type="string">Internal Network</name> <virtual_server> <dhcp> <enabled type="boolean">true</enabled> <ending_ip_address type="integer">2851998462</ending_ip_address> <network type="integer">2851995648</network> <network_mask type="integer">4294901760</network_mask> <starting_ip_address type="integer">2851995664</starting_ip_address> </dhcp> </virtual_server> </virtual_network> <virtual_network id="1"> <id type="bytes">01010101010101010101010101010101</id> <gateway type="integer">1</gateway> <name type="string">Shared Networking (NAT)</name> </virtual_network> [...]
I am running out of ideas, and can't find other clues on the forums.
Please help! Thanks,
Do you mean that the physical network adapter on the host machine is not available in the Networking settings of the Windows XP Mode?
If so, you may also try to uninstall and reinstall Windows Virtual PC to check the result.

No luck with that either. I disabled all kind of offloading in my NIC (Flow control, IPv4 Checksum, Large Send, RSS, TCP Checksum) then deleted my Options.xml and checked/unchecked the Windows Virtual PC feature with proper reboot.
Can anybody send a copy of its C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\options.xml?
I got it to work (was having same issue).
There should be an option in virtual pc settings to clear all messages. I cleared all messages and restarted virtual pc 2007. When it started i got a message saying virtual pc 2007 was having trouble binding to the network adapter and it could be fixed by binding to all... then it asked for a file. The file it wanted was located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Virtual PC\Utility\VMNetSrv\x64
After that everything worked.
Other stuff i did that may or may not be related:
-uninstalled vmware workstation
-unchecked ipv6 on ethernet adapter
-turned off hardware virtualization in xml file
