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.
Comment 6 Cole Robinson 2016-02-29 14:15:10 EST
The script changes are upstream now:


So this just needs an internal rebuild to pick it up
Comment 10 Yash Mankad 2016-07-11 17:03:01 EDT
Fixed in virtio-win-1.7.5-1.el6
Comment 15 lijin 2016-10-31 22:45:43 EDT
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.
