    Please mask the key ... it's not allowed to post them here :cool2:.

    IP doesn't look like a LAN IP :g:. Check with ipconfig for the IPv4 adress of the ethernet adapter of your VM. Which LAN mode the VM is running?

    So I did a clean WinXP install on this old Dell desktop. I cannot install Windows 7 since it doesn't have a DVD drive and it can't boot from flash drive..

    how the heck can you do anything with it then cannot boot to Flash Drive, and No DVD yet you installed Clean WinXP, strange to me.

    After a restart you should check the IP again :cool2:. What gives the ipconfig command inside Win 7?

    Hmm ... interesting, when checking one of my Win 7 VMware machines running in NAT mode the IPv4 shows as 192.168.10.142 and when doing a ping from my host system:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32>ping 192.168.10.142
    
    Ping wird ausgeführt für 192.168.10.142 mit 32 Bytes Daten:
    Antwort von 192.168.10.142: Bytes=32 Zeit<1ms TTL=128
    Antwort von 192.168.10.142: Bytes=32 Zeit<1ms TTL=128

    with 7/8 once you connect to a network you can ping the pc and find it under network if you choose home network...

    why doesn't XP let you? what setting do I need to enable? Also i can't find my VM or my XP PC under Network of my other PC's.

    damn you XP!

    I think this is a routing issue between the VM (a 10.x.x.x Network) and the XP (a 192.168.x.x Network) installation. See in the network setting of VirtualBox to let it be in the 10.x.x.x network and let it fowrward DHCP-request to use the 10.x.x.x network whre all your other PC to activate are. Also XP is/was sometimes very funny to properly find other PCs.

    You could also create a static route in your router to let it forward all things for the 10.x.x.x network to the XP. But this is rather complicated and crapy and/or cheap routers are sometimes not able to do this.

    Another way to solve this would be that you temporary connect a DVD-drive and isntall a Win8 or a Server 2012r2 core. This is better suited in Windows-Networks than the very old XP. VMs complicate things very much if you don't have the neccesary skills to set them up in your network.

    this was looking way too complicated...

    so what I did was burn Tiny7 on a CD, install it, install the KMS Server, and it worked :cool:

    The VM has nat enabled, so you have to port forward from XP Dell desktop host to VM if you want to activate a laptop on the lan. The ip address of the kms server should be the one of the XP host and all requests made on port 1688 are to be forwarded to the VM address.

    By setting the VM to Bridged this had been a non-issue.
