How to create a floppy drive image for a virtual machine

Map the file

Once the virtual floppy drive file is on the datastore, it will need to be mapped to the virtual machine's floppy drive. Be sure to click the device status dialog boxes for selecting if the device is connected at power on. The default value is to not have the device connected. Depending on the configuration of these options, the boot behavior of the virtual machine may be impacted.
