I need help with network support for Win PE in VMWare WS or MS VPC

By rfreestun ·
I am trying to test an SOE rollout and have a 300MB WinPE1.6 image followed by a 25GB deployment resource on network or NTFS formatted memory key.
With the WPE image in VMWorkstation or Microsoft Virtual PC (On a WXP SP3 Host)I am unable to access outside networks. I can ping the image network card (I think) at but am unable to ping anything else - I get a General Failure message.
1) Am I correct in assuming the problem is with network support of the VM Ware or MVPC (because I can ping
2) What can I do about it?
Any suggestions are appreciated.

You can always ping

by seanferd In reply to I need help with network ...

so this is diagnostic of nothing. I would seriously consider some more informative tests than ping.

Shot in the dark:
Are you on a corporate network then? Any MAC filtering in use? Do realize that the VM has its own MAC address, which has nothing to do with any installed physical Ethernet device.

Was there any configuring of networking in the image or running VM at all?
