Centos VM Duplication Not Detecting NIC

So I duplicated a VM in VMware 5.5 that happened to be Centos 6. I added a new NIC and set the NIC type to E1000. I booted up the machine and…nothing. It didn’t see the NIC. I ran setup…and it didn’t see the NIC. After much time an annoyance I eventually issued one simple command:

ifconfig eth1 up

And low and behold it came up. It was detected, just no configuration was done int he OS…I felt like a dunce.

From this point just run “setup” and add a NIC of name eth1 or duplicate the ifcfg-eth0 and change the necessary portions.
