Error Locating My Documents to Write Temp Files After VMware Physical to Virtual Conversion

I was doing a physical to virtual conversion on a Windows 2003 Small Business Server. After the conversion, I shutdown the old physical server and booted the virtual server. I started the VMware tools installation and it got an error warning that it could not locate the path to My Documents to write temp files. Since no network interfaces (NICs) were available it did not load the SYSVOL and therefore could not find domain shares. I also could not change the My Documents redirection because it would not allow me to load the Domain Group Policy. The flexible NICs I initial tried to use did not work since VMware Tools could not install and the system did not have a driver available. The system did have a driver available for Intel E1000 NICs, I changed the NIC type to E1000 and rebooted. Windows installed the driver allowing the SYSVOL to load and allow me to install VMware Tools.
