Is there any way to activate video acceleration? Or change the amount of video memory?

Hi there, thanks for a great article. I have 2 successful smooth installations, but I have an issue with networking, Sierra says the network cable is unplugged. I have tried with VM Network NAT and Bridge settings but no luck. Anyway the VM network indicator is enabled and shows it is connected, but not inside the Sierra. On the same time my El Capitan doesn’t show similar issue.

Please help to solve this issue.
Thanks
