Windows 10 drivers exist only on iso, they do neither exist on vfd or as "normal" files of the rpm:
$ rpm -qlp virtio-win-1.7.4-1.el6_7.2.noarch.rpm | egrep '/Win[^\/]*$'
$ rpm -qlp virtio-win-1.7.4-1.el6_7.2.noarch.rpm | egrep '\.(iso|vfd)$'
$ for f in virtio-win-1.7.4.iso virtio-win-1.7.4_amd64.vfd virtio-win-1.7.4_x86.vfd ; do 7z l $f | egrep -i 'w(in)*10$' | while read l ; do echo $f $l ; done ; done
virtio-win-1.7.4.iso 2015-10-08 20:06:44 D.... Balloon/w10
virtio-win-1.7.4.iso 2015-10-08 20:06:44 D.... NetKVM/w10
virtio-win-1.7.4.iso 2015-10-08 20:06:44 D.... viorng/w10
virtio-win-1.7.4.iso 2015-10-08 20:06:44 D.... vioscsi/w10
virtio-win-1.7.4.iso 2015-10-08 20:06:44 D.... vioserial/w10
virtio-win-1.7.4.iso 2015-10-08 20:06:44 D.... viostor/w10
So again, most users would install Windows 10 with virtio block device witch attaching vfd with drivers.
due to floppy size limitation,win10 drivers are not included in floppy file,QE announced it in bug1274123 during rhel7.2,just mark it here.
The script changes are upstream now:
So this just needs an internal rebuild to pick it up
Fixed in virtio-win-1.7.5-1.el6
check in virtio-win-1.8.0-1.el6,windows 10 drivers are included in both virtio-win-1.8.0_amd64.vfd and virtio-win-1.8.0_x86.vfd.
So this issue has been fixed.
Change status to verified.
