I think I remember: By default, you have an empty floppy drive, and using

Also see from the qemu manpage:

           Don't create default devices. Normally, QEMU sets the
default devices like serial port,
           parallel port, virtual console, monitor device, VGA
adapter, floppy and CD-ROM drive and
           others. The "-nodefaults" option will disable all those
default devices.

However if you specify that, you'll need to specify a whole load of
other args to create all those other devices.

I see someone once provided a patch to disable just the floppy:

... but as far as I can tell it didn't get applied.


Thanks for solving the mystery of the phantom floppy icon. Would be nice if that patch were officially applied. (Hint, hint) But in any case, I now know why it's there and what can be done to remove it. I wonder why that didn't show up when I searched the archives before posting . . .

See you around and thanks for qemu and the great support.  :)
