Where is the pvscsi-Windows2008.flp image when attempting to install Windows 2008 R2 with a Paravirtualized SCSI Controller?

I want to install from an ISO a copy of Windows SBS 2011 which is WIndows 2008 R2 with a dress on. I want to run from the word go the paravirtual scsci controller driver. And to install a mass storage driver from install you need to mount the driver on a floppy. So where is it located?

It’s on the ESXi server.

You add a Floppy Drive to your VM (if it doesn’t already exist) and then select to “Use a floppy image” and navigate to  “/vmimages/floppies/pvscsi-Windows2008.flp”
