[Solved] VM from real laptop - some drivers missing

Postby MIRKOSOFT » 30. Oct 2017, 02:45

Hi!

I created virtual machine from old laptop with Windows 7 installed by Paragon Virtualization Manager.
I started machine and after installing add-ons was all ok except these 3 controllers:
Ethernet controller
Multimedia Audio controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) controller

I mean main problem is that VM is not connected to internet, when connects other drivers will be downloaded and installed.
Problem in network is general - I used all possible variants of settings for Network Card.

When I was desperate, I used Duo Driver and backuped laptop drivers and by shared folder I restored them on VM - of course, these drivers are from real hardware, so ethernet was not solved.

Can anybody help me, or exist any ISO with all drivers for Windows guests?

Thank you for all.

Any standard Windows setup CD will have that, but no one here can give you that.

Unless you changed the template then the Win7 VM was given an "Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM)" network adapter by default. So, that's the device you need to find drivers for. Stick them in a GA shared fodler and copy them into the VM.

Thank you.

I solved it by any curious way - I created only diskimage,not whole VM and tried to start it - reports error in BSOD.
Then I compared network settings and forced the same on older VM - and works!
Even other drivers were after connection installed.

Thank you for help.
