Virtual PC SP1 Networking address “00:00:00:00:00:00” problem

When you start a Virtual Machine under Microsoft VirtualPC with SP1 and get the following error message "The network adapter with address "00:00:00:00:00:00" of virtual machine "…." failed to initialize because the address is a null address", than you can fix it with the following steps:

Start REGEDIT:

1. Examine the key value at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318}\<nnnn>\DriverDesc to locate the desired host adapter where <nnnn> is a four digit number.
2. Look at the GUID value for the NetCfgInstanceId key value.
3. Add the DWORD key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VPCNetS2\Parameters\Adapters\<guid>\Flags and set the value to 0 where <guid> is the GUID found in step 2.
4. Restart the computer.
