I have the exact same problem on my laptop. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 - bit on a Compaq Presario F730US (dual-core AMD) with 2.5GB + 320GB.
I am currently running 188.8.131.52523-Win.
I have 3 VMs: Ubuntu Server 10.4, Ubuntu desktop 10.4, and Puppy 5.1.1.
When I attempt to enable a network adapter and select Bridged, I get no option to select an adapter name and the error message 'On the Network Adapter x page, no bridged network adapter is selected'.
I am running a nearly identical setup on my XP SP3 box and it works fine.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling 3.2.8-64453-Win.
I have tried reinstalling 3.2.10 as an upgrade from 3.2.8.
I have tried reinstalling 3.2.10 as a 'repair' install.
Prior to all this, I have been using the Ubuntu desktop as an Apache server to work on web pages and I have had no trouble. I can share folders, FTP, and call my pages up by the name of the VM or by its ip.
I am trying to get some assignments completed and I really do not want to have to use VMWare.
I am not the only student in my class having these problems. Some of us aren't even idiots. Our instructor is out of ideas and so are we.
Please tell me what I can do to help fix this problem.
