No guarantees, but you can try the following:

 

1) Get the device id of the ethernet controller.

Go into Windows -> Device Manager.

 

Find the ethernet controller and get Properties on it.

 

Click the Details tab and read the vendor id and device id. The vendor id is going to be "11AB"

2) In OSX, go into Terminal and edit the following file:

sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist

 

Scroll down and find the following:
<key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>

<string>0x
4362
11AB</string>

Replace the
bold
numbers with the device id you found above.

 

Press Control-O to save

Press Control-X to exit
3) Delete the following files. In Terminal, type:

sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

4) Repair permissions. In Terminal, type:

diskutil repairPermissions /

5) Reboot
