#StackBounty: #networking #virtual-machine #hyper-v Windows XP in Hyper V – missing internet and network connectivity with ethernet LAN

Bounty: 50

So after installing Windows 10 Pro with Hyper-V I successfully create a new virtual machine pointing to my old Windows XP Mode hard disk.

Windows XP boots but now asks to be registered/unlocked. However, I can not since it can not connect to internet. (I have original CD + license key)

I have setup a Virtual Switch Manager – external – connected to my physical ethernet network card.

In my hardware settings for the Windows XP virtual machine, I have added a network adapter which I have connec to the above mentioned switch.

But the virtual windows xp still states it can not register/unlock online as it does not have internet connectivity – how can I solve it?
