    You have installed it but have you configured it and authorised it?

    Uhhh..do you mean it's not magic? :D

    That is the first placed to look, but are the PCs in the same VLAN as the DHCP server? If not, then do you have a DHCP relay (IP Helper-Address) configured on the gateway of the PCs? Can you ping from the PCs to the DHCP server and vice versa?

    Set the network settings to host only, that way your VM's will get IP addresses from the virtual DHCP server and your physical machines will get their IP's from your modem/router.
