First of all, I am running my test system under player, so it does work.

How have you configured your virtual machine's network adapter? Have you changed it from the default of NAT to Bridged?

I'm running under Win7. If I go into manage>virtual machine settings then double click the adapter and uncheck "connect at power on", I get your problem. When I check the box and restart the machine, it all works.

So, assuming that you have that option checked normally, my guess is that it is something to do with the binding of the virtual machine network adapter with your real one which would make it a VMware problem.

The other thing I just decided that I don't know, is how VMware handles the network adapter. It might be that your real machine has to have an adapter that xpenoboot supports.

yes, i have that option checked:(

you probably right, i have some problem with my network adapter...

my board is asus z77e-itx,

The exactly same thing happens if i try ubuntu in a vmware, "etho is not running"...

in windows the network adapter works fine....i have to wait for other ideas that can help me...:sad:

 

thanks
