    I want to install Windows 2008 R2 on Proxmox. The installation ends well. But when it starts the network card does not take IP address from DHCP on the network, displays a message that says "Unidentified Network" never connects to the Internet.

    I tested with the following hardware:
    ASUS Motherboard Chipset H61-MLX P8H61
    ECS Motherboard Chipset H61H2 H61-M3
    Network Adapter Realtek 8111 Gigabit
    Network Adapter Realtek 8168 Gigabit
    Network Adapter Realtek 8139 Megabit

    And the following software:
    Proxmox v1.8
    Proxmox v1.9
    Proxmox v2.0 RC1
    Windows 2008 Server Standard 64 bit
    Windows 2008 Server Standard R2 64 Bit

    If Windows was installed directly on the hardware, ie without Proxmox, works perfectly well, the network adapter get fine the IP and connects seamlessly to the Internet.

    I'm tired of seeking help from google and this forum but nothing!

    If someone managed to install Windows 2008 Server Standard R2 64 Bit on Proxmox, I will greatly appreciate your help. :D

    Please excuse my English; is not so good. ;)

    Best Regards

    I have many 2K8 R2 servers running on Proxmox v1.7 - v1.9. A few as RDS systems.
    I use the e1000 network card option in Pmx.

    The hardware is HP BL465 G1 and Tyan Thunder n3600B based motherboards.
