- Create a folder containing the contents of the floppy disk you are about to create. For example:
cp clusterConfig.xml cucmpubfloppy/
cp platformConfig.xml cucmpubfloppy/
- Next, use the hdiutil command to create the floppy image from that folder
hdiutil create -size 1440k -fs "MS-DOS FAT12" -layout NONE -srcfolder floppyroot -format UDRW -ov floppy.dmg
- And finally, rename the file to .flp so VMware will recognize it.
mv floppy.dmg floppy.flp
- Later, if you need to mount that .flp on MacOS, you can also do that with hdiutil:
hdiutil attach floppy.flp
