Bug#509379: firmware not found on virtual floppy or virtual CDROM

Quoting Daniel Pocock (daniel@pocock.com.au):

I would suggest yo to try enabling the virtual floppy earlier in the

The sequence you describe means that d-i would have to rescan
available devices before looking around and try mounting the ones that
are present.

however, I'm unsure (and can't check right now) if such a scan is done
between the moment you're prompted and the failure message.

So, imho, you'd get better chances if you enable your virtual floppy
as early as possible.
