I tried to install CentOS7 on my VMWare Workstation using the netinstall method (as I always do) , but this failed.

In the configuration for the installation, I did not see any network adapters. I tried to add new adapters - but it just didn’t work - they did not appear.
And without network, no netinstall, obviously.

I tried the same with Redhat 7, to check if it might be something that’s no longer supported (very unlikely), but in RHEL7, it just worked.

In the end, I deleted the virtual machine with CentOS7, and created a new one. This time, I did see the network card and I could do the netinstall.
