This is what I want to do, I would like to run my BT4 on my hard drive vs. running it on Vmware. I get a faster response from BT4 on my hardrive and everything works extremely better on my hard drive. But before I start doing that I need to get BT4 to be able to network without being in bridged mode on Vmware.
I hate that I had to come in here to ask for help, I really tried looking for the answer all week, this is my last resort. Hopfully this post can end up being a sticky to help others in the forum once I get it working.
