Delete hidden vNIC, the Eric Siebert wayPosted: July 25, 2012 Filed under: VMware, Windows | Tags: delete hidden device, ghost e1000, hidden, hidden device, hidden e1000, hidden NIC, hidden vNIC, uninstall ghost NIC, uninstall hidden, uninstall hidden device, vNIC Leave a comment
A funny thing happened this afternoon. Usually, when you know there’s a hidden NIC in a VM, you simply run the command, set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1. Then you’ll see the hidden device in Device Manager. Well that didn’t happen to me.
The virtual hardware showed an e1000 vNIC installed in this VM, but no icon showed up in Network Connections.
