I dug and dug and dug.... but found nothing.... so I went back to my old school ways! I verified the network setup for another VMware virtual machine. I then compared it to my NT4_vm. I believe it should have installed an AMDpcNET NIC. The network card was not detected.... but hey, NT4 wasn't plug and play. I attempted to get VMserver to add another one, but I still got nothing. I tried to add the AMD NICs, but I was asked for drivers, which I thought should be on the server already. I tried the faithful paths from yesteryear, and got it 'somewhat' installed, but it still wouldn't see the network. Finally, I resorted to downloading full drivers for AMDpcNet family NICs (NT4) and installed them by simply saying 'install from disk', and voila! I now have a NT4 box that should run for a very long time if required.
I had the same problem. Eventual solution was to startup the VM (VMserver) then select “Install VMware tools” (even if they are already installed) Select “OK” until the Installshield wizard starts, don’t OK that, just leave it.
CD drive should now be showing a virtual VMware disk.
On NT, go to Network neighbourhood / Properties / Adapters tab,select <add New]
Select [Have Disk] then specify path:
D:Program filesVMwareVMware toolsDriversvmxnetwinnt
This should install VMware Virtual Ethernet Adaptor. When complete, you can cancel tools install.
Thank you for this tip AMDpcNet family NICs NT4 it worked for me, after I used VMware converter to convert physical nt4 to virtual machine
