Network Card does not work when Windows Vista is installed on ESX 2.5.x family

Today I was installing Windows Vista on a virtual machine which is hosted on ESX 2.x

I came across issue where Vista is unable to recognize network card drivers. Network card configuration in ESX is set to Vlance. Following is the link to the AMD site for the drivers which you will need to get it working.


If someone like the ISO for this please let me know and I will email you. It’s a pretty small size ISO.

Tested on:

Microsoft Windows Vista (Ver 6.0.6000)
VMware ESX Server, 2.5.2, 16390
