On a Windows XP Professional 32-bit guest, the e1000 NIC driver is not automatically available even though the e1000 vNIC is supported (1016456)
Download and install the e1000 NIC driver from the Intel Website.
To get the driver in to the virtual machine:
- Using an appropriate third party ISO creation tool, create an ISO file with the driver file in it
- Mount the ISO file as a CD-ROM image in the virtual machine.
The virtual machine detects the ISO as a CD-ROM and allows access to the driver file contained in the ISO file.
