That is currently not supported, but I can tell you a workaround if you
only need it during install.

 

Lest assume your VM has ID 777.

 

If you type:

 

# qm showcmd 777

/usr/bin/kvm -monitor unix:/var/run/qemu-server/777.mon,server,nowait...

 

This is the kvm command to start the VM.

 

Simple add '-fda /path/to/floppy/image' to that command and start it
manually.

Subject: [PVE-User] Floppy Image

 

I am trying to install an OS that requires a boot floppy.  My server
does not have a floppy drive so I have made an image of the floppy disk.
How do I go about booting the floppy for the initial install?

 

Thanks,
