Windows 7: Windows 2000 in VM Under Win 7??

I do have a backup on the external drive (nightly backups), but let me see if I can just shut down and go back to the other settings again to get network connectivity.

I'm no longer logging into the domain, I've switched it to "Workgroup" at the IT guy's suggestion. I've unmapped my network drives (the ones on the domain) as I won't need them.

Note: I notice I have a "virtual" CD drive with the disk "VBOXADDITIONS_3" inserted, and a number of files and folders showing. But, we'll get to that after I get the network back.

Alright, here's what I've tested for you:

The easy way
This would be setting the Network to NAT, and let your Windows 2000 network back to DHCP enabled. Once it's done, check "ipconfig /all", make sure all info are filled out.

The hard way
Turn your Windows 7 into a "router", you can use this link as reference.

OR


Enable Internet Connection Sharing under Windows 7, effectively making it a NAT gateway.

I'm able to get it working again by going back to the original settings. It sometimes takes several boots to get it working after a change, but it is working again.

Under "The Easy Way", I've been doing this while waiting for your message. All I get in ipconfig is 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0

It there some particular "order" to make these changes? I have to change the VM network settings to NAT, then I have to boot the VM and set it's IP settings to "automatic", then reboot. Then I get 0.0.0.0. Should I reverse the order?

I should expect to see the IP address of the host machine, right?

Since it works for you, and not for me (again), I'm obviously not doing something right.

Why not try this:

Shut down the VM, change settings, boot up VM, disable VM networking, enable VM networking, look into "ipconfig /all"

Edit: You won't see the host's IP address, in my VM it got 10.x.y.z IP address, and it works, I don't see any network interface has that network on my Network Interface list.
Edit2: All that above assuming that the VM networking is ==> DHCP enabled.

While waiting for your reply, I decided to install the VBOXADDITIONS. They appeared to install successfully, and rebooted the machine. Now I get a blue screen every single time I reboot the VM. This is how the VM window appears at the BSOD point. Not that I can click OK on that window about the MP Integration and it does close. I will probably have to go to the backup now...

Hmm, just curious, did you enable "Hardware Virtualization" support?
Windows 2K doesn't like to be virtualized iirc, unless you have hardware virtualization support...
Oh yeah, do not enable nested paging unless your processor is Core i7 (and up) or Phenom II (and up)

Hardware Virtualization is enabled in the BIOS, yes. It is also checked ON on the system/accel tab. Enable Nested Paging is checked OFF.

These the settings you're asking about?

Yes.

Hmm... Let me search a bit... The network problem, after restoring your backup, is it operational now? Or still no connection?

Edit: Additions is compatible with Win2K... If you can extract that dump file, it'd be great... OR you can just ignore the display problem, and use the virtual machine as is...

The file I restored crashes the same way, as if I didn't restore anything and some other data is still being used.

I renamed PC115.vmdk to PC115.vmdk.old, and restored PC115.vmdk from the drive. I now have two HUGE files stilling there. (one .old, one not)

When I start the VM still BSOD and still shows the mouse integration message from the additions I applied.

I think it's using old data. See this:

To be safe, release the .vmdk off your VM, remove the virtual disk to another folder, attach the backup virtual disk.
