    Unable to remove Floppy Drive

      Hi Guys,

       

      We can't seem to remove a floppy drive on our VM.

       

       

      We have tried so many times on removing it, but it keeps on coming back.

       

      So we just try to disable it on BIOS, lo and behold, there's no disable option

       

       

      This as been causing some issues with our Altaro Backup, as it does not take an Application backup due to this:

      Any ideas on how can we remove the floppy device on our VM? We're on ESXI 6.5.

      Thanks!
