hey chat-bisd - thanks for the reply.

I have booted the VM into debug mode, I noticed that when I do an ifconfig the eth0 card is not detected - which is strange! I tried updating the kernel to 3.2.4 with the VMware SCSI Driver Support included - however it still does not detect the eth0 card.

When I run the compatibility test with FOG the hard disk passes but network fails…

Any tips??
