There's no need for a floppy device.

Steps to take (with oVirt 4.1.9 and Virtio-SCSI disk in VM):
1. "Run once" - "Boot Options" - "Attach CD" to attach the Windows 
2016R2 ISO
2. Windows setup starts in console window
3. Choose "Install Windows only"
4. Windows setup presents "Where do you want to install Windows?"
5. oVirt "Change CD" - choose oVirt-toolsSetup-4.15.fc24.iso (has to be 
in ISO domain)
6. Windows setup "Load driver" - "No signed drivers found" - OK - 
"Browse" - navigate to CD ROM drive "vioscsi - win2016r2 - amd64" folder 
- driver is highlighted - Next
7. Windows setup presents "Drive 0 Unallocated Space" (with warning: 
"Windows can't be installed on this device")
8. oVirt "Change CD" - choose Windows 2016R2 ISO
9. Windows setup "Refresh"
10. Warning disappears - Press "Next"
