Network drivers missing entirely from Additions

Reported by: fatman_uk Owned by:

Host type: Windows

Description

The user manual says:

If you would like to install the files and drivers manually, you can extract the files from the Windows Guest Additions setup by typing:



VBoxWindowsAdditions.exe /extract

...

You will then find the AMD PCNet driver files in the x86\Network\AMD\netamd.inf subdirectory of the default install directory.

Seems there should be a folder called "Network" after the manual extract is performed, but it isn't there. Could the network drivers be re-added to Additions please?

Thanks for reading.

Sorry, shipping the AMD device driver is not possible anymore for legal reasons. I've fixed the corresponding section in the user manual. Just use the E1000 adapter, this should work fine with Vista.
