Mine is Mdk 10.0 OE, but IMO the problem is that there were around many 
different adapters with Cirrus 5446 chipset, so maybe the windows driver
doesn't recognize the right one. Anyway, installing the SDD solved the problem 
for me also (after a few restarts, of course, but it's Windows ...). This 
should be saind in the docs, as it seems that since the Cirrus emulation SDD 
is no more required, and anyway that SDD should be used with the Bochs VESA 
emulation (-std-vga) only.

Now I'm trying to set up a smb connection with my host, but still without 
success. On Mdk the eth0 initialization fails if nothing is connected to the 
Ethernet cable, and it seems that without it the smbd doesn't start either, 
so this could explain why it's not working for me. I'll try with my laptop 
connected to see if anything changes

Thank you for the suggestions
