Newly provisioned machines fail to complete their customizations due to inaccessible floppy drive.
When connecting to the template machine and checking in device manager in Windows, the floppy disk controller is disabled.
Sophos Anti-virus is installed on the template machine and is configured to secure removable storage. When provisioning new machines, the floppy disk drive is used during the machine customizations. When it is not available the operation fails.
Remove Sophos from the template machine and deploy after the VMs have been created.
