Volumio + VMware Networking

Has anyone managed to get Volumio working on VMware Workstation with 1Gb networking?

I have everything working but networking defaults to 10Mbps speed

When I try changing the NIC via the VMX file to e1000e or vmxnet3, Volumio doesnt recognise the NIC (because I cant install VMware Tools). Host connection is definitely on 1Gbps

Anyone have 100Mbps/1Gbps working on VMware Workstation?
