Q. How do I enable a floppy disk with Windows Virtual PC in Windows 7?

A. Floppy disk usage is declining, so the new Windows Virtual PC that's available in Windows 7 doesn't expose floppy disks within the GUI. However, floppy drives are still supported by Windows Virtual PC. To configure them, you need to use scripts that Microsoft provides. Both VBScript and PowerShell examples are given.
