Create a virtual floppy disk in Virtual Server

To create a virtual floppy disk

  1. Open the Administration Website.
  2. In the navigation pane, under Virtual Disks, point to Create, and then click Virtual Floppy Disk.
  3. In Location, select the folder in which to store the virtual floppy disk file. If the folder you want does not appear in the list, you must type the fully qualified path to the folder in the following step.
  4. In Virtual floppy disk file name, after the path to the folder, type a name for the virtual floppy disk that you want to create. You do not need to include a file name extension.
  5. Click Create.
To perform this procedure, you must have the appropriate permissions. If you do not have the appropriate permissions, you will either receive an error message or you will not be able to view certain menu items and options described in this procedure. To change your permissions, contact your Virtual Server administrator. For more information, see Securing Virtual Server. Virtual Server creates high-density virtual floppy disks only, which are 1.44 MB in size. However, you can use high density and low density (740 KB) physical floppy disks in a virtual machine.
