So here is the thing, I tried to install the 2019 Preview on my Vmware Workstation Player and windows is not able to find any network card? After running sconfig it throws an error that "There are no active Netowrk Adapters" not sure how to deal with this? I am using Dell Lattitude 3450 Laptop as host.

What current version of VMware Workstation or Player you are current using in deploying your Windows Server 2019 Preview Build 17623. If you used lower version of VMware Workstation/Player try you upgrade you VMware Workstation/Player to the latest version in order to support the current build component of Windows Server 2019.
