Virtual PC 2007 kills my host network connection

    I installed VPC2007 (latest version) on my Vista Ultimate PC. I have a Asus
    M2N-SLI Deluxe nForce 570 SLI motherboard.

    When I reboot my host, and Vista is loaded, my hosts networkcard is not
    working anymore (red cross in the taskbar). When I try to do any action using
    the device manager (like trying to disable the card) it will freeze the
    device manager. I can't even update or remove the card using the device
    manager as well..

    I boot Vista into save mode, disable the network card, reboot, enable the
    card and then I can use my networkcard...

    Any idea what's going on?? I'm using the latest bios, network/system drivers

    Sounds like nVidia NIC drivers. I have had similar issues with my
    680i board. I found one version of NIC drivers that actually works
    quite a while ago (the MS version from 6/21/2006) and have been using
    them since. The System restore works great for getting back.

    I just tried the latest WHQL drivers for x64 Vista and the problem
    still exists.

  3. I'm having a similar issue with a Broadcom NIC- Everything works fine, unitl
    I bind a VPC to the live NIC.
    I'm using VPC 2007 64 bit version on Windows Server 2003 R2 64-bit a Dell
    1950 with 2 Intel Dual Core 5050s.
    Has anyone a similar problem?
