Network Addaptor Not Conntected

This post was originally published on this site

I am using vmware workstation pro 15.5.

My system is amd ryzen 5 3400g, 64gb ram, gigabyte b450 aorus elite, two 970 evo plus in raid0.

My O/s is Windows 10  vers 2004 build 19041.450 .

I have set up a windows xp pro VM.

Everything works fine, except I can’t Update XP.

Back in the Settings for the VM Under Virtual Machine Settings/Network Adaptor/ Device Status, ( Connected at Power On ) is Ticked.

But ( Connected ) is Greyed Out.

And so in the vm ( windows xp ) when I try to run windows Update, it tells me it can’t connect to the web page address for update and a lot of other bs.

Any help with this would be appreciated.
