Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, i wasn't too sure sorry.

Anyway, i have Windows Server 2008 R2 running in a virtual box, and its basically saying that there is no network connection. I have tried changing the network settings in VB such as NAT, Bridge adapter etc. however it still says there is no network. I have even tried the virtualbox on both my computer and laptop and get the same message.

I have an XP virtual box loaded and this has no issues with the internet what so ever.

Attached are some print screens of the errors i am receiving from the virtual box.


If anyone could help me with this it would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

It is saying there is no network connection because the driver has failed to install for the virtualized network adapter. According to the FAQ's microsoft dropped support for one of the adapters they were using in Vista. They say to try the intel E1000 driver manually. Also another possiblity is that one of the inf files is corrupted. Check out the FAQ to see about this. The only solution they give is to uninstall and reinstall virtual box. I would also try to download a server 2008 compatible driver for your computers network adapter and install that on the virtual box server it may work too.

Did you try going to the driver tab on the VB server network adapter in device manager and changing the adapter driver to the Intel E1000 driver? If so also try the AMD PCNet driver since that is what the older VB clients tried to use.

You should select the Intel PRO/1000 MT Server adapter in the VBox GUI.
That should install automatically when you restart your Server 2008 R2 machine.

David just in case you needed some information on the differences between the VB network types here is a summary.

 

https://www.thomas-krenn.com/en/wiki/Network_Configuration_in_VirtualBox.

 

The two most common modes are NAT and Bridge.

 

NAT will use the IP address being used by the host. Actually it assigns an IP to the VM and then the VB network driver that was installed on the host does NAT between the host and the VM.

 

Bridge will actually assign an IP to the VM from the DHCP provider on the physical network. If your router is issuing IP addresses between 192.168.0.100 and 192.168.0.200 and your host is assigned the IP address 192.168.0.101, then your VM may get the IP address 192.168.0.102.
