So, using what I found at https://access.redhat.com/discussions/722093

I added the following line to my .vmx file:

Code: Select all

ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"
And it works :)

it works for me too !

tnx a lot !

Adding below line to .vmx worked for me.

ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"

I had this problem too - centos 7 really slow on vmware 12.5 - and found that selecting bridged network and 'replicate physical' in the vmware network settings seemed to fix the problem.

I'm using Windows 10 and VMWare Workstation 10.0.7 and this is still an issue. This post and the e1000 suggestion definitely saved me from a lot of hair pulling. Was about to give up!. I just powered down the guest OS, modified the .vmx file to add that line, powered it up again, went through the install and the card magically appeared. I did notice I had to manually flip it to on in the CentOS wizard install but that was easy compared to trying to figure out why no cards were showing up. :)
