Create an .flp image for use with VMWare using Linux

Written by James McDonald

February 18, 2013

In linux do:

mkfs.msdos -C floppy.flp 1440

# mount it

mkdir floppy

sudo mount -o loop floopy.flp floppy

cp <what_you_need_on_floppy> floppy/

sudo umount floppy

 

Once you have created the image copy it up to your datastore and then point your VM floppy drive at it.

This was so I can provide an SBS2011 Migration answer file to a VM.
