XPenology has no internet

I have been trying to get a xpenology vm up and running on my unraid to use it to automatically sync pictures from the phones of my family. I got the machine running after a little while but I can't get it to turn up on the router or using synology assistant. I've already read the thread about changing the network adapter type to e1000 but this also doesn't work. I have a HP Proliant Dl360 G6 with 4 NICs but I can't seperate them. The server has 32 GB RAM installed and 2 times Xeon E5540. 


I changed the mac address of the virutal machine to be the same as the grub.cfg file. I created the virtual machine with the linux template changing the name, processors, ram amount. The first disk is a image from xpenology, the second disk is just a empty virtual disk. In the xml I changed nic type to e1000. Yet I still can't connect to the synology interface. You can find all the files I used following this link, https://lucappelman.stackstorage.com/s/pzLg35TndXpNYm9. This includes the grub.cfg, xml config of my virtual machine, picture of my NICs from system devices and the .img to start xpenology. 


Hope someone finds my mistake :)

I managed to solve this by changing the network adapter, I wrote e1000 but instead it should have been e1000-82545em.

BTW I am on unraid 6.6.7


I hope you don't give up like me until you find out you tried to use the e1000 adapter for a windows VM and dig a little deeper until you find the solution😜

OMG finally!


Changed to e1000 and all is well. Which is weird because I edited the XML file to e1000-82545em and it won't boot, but after I changed it back to e1000 it works. I swear I did try e1000 the whole night yesterday ugh


Well it's booting now, but it only detects 2 out of 3 qcow2 10GB vDisks. We'll see. 


Edit: Oh turns out I extracted the VMDK, converted them to raw and added them into the VM as disks 2 3 4. Disk 4 isn't detected because it is empty or something. And now nothing works lol. Guess I have to start all over
