Where to find "SCSI Shunt Driver.vfd" required for VM with Windows Server 2008 R2 ?

When trying to Create a VM (virtual machine) with OS (operating system) as Windows Server 2008 (including R2) using SCSI interface for HDD (because it can be Compacted later, IDE HDD can not be compacted), you are asked to provide Drivers from a Floppy.
I research and found that there is a virtual floppy file called "SCSI Shunt Driver.vfd" who are supposed to be included in Microsoft Software "Virtual Server 2005 R2".
Unfortunately VS 2005 R2 is to old and I was not able to find file "SCSI Shunt Driver.vfd".
Any Suggestion to find the file "SCSI Shunt Driver.vfd" will be much appreciated.

Please help. Thank you.

Wonder full ... 10 days without none provide me a 50 ko driver from a Free Software from 2007 called Virtual Server 2005 R2. It is more and more clear to me that no one from Microsoft are really reading this Q sections since about Answers we can not discuss yet. :(

So you can buy in peace Windows 2022 DC licence with tons of money, you can buy also 2008 software with no support or anything .. and without SCSI driver are spend money for nothing :(

I wonder what have Mr. DSPatrick in mind when he said that someone who give me the Driver from a kit will broke the licence ? Virtual Server 2005 R2 was released as a FREE SOFTWARE since 2007 and this status was never revoked, this means it is the same today. So .. what licence I broke when I ask someone to provide me this 50 ko driver within a free software from 2007 and having 17 years old ?
hmmm
what licence I broke .. without even knowing ? hmmm

- Age,
- Knowledge
- and Experience,

I do not broke ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING if I kindly demand to provide me 50 ko driver 17 years old belong to a 15 years old FREE SOFTWARE.

I know it, you know it, but .. somehow .. you prefer to Not helping Me even it NOT broke any law.

You do not even need to download the software from the Place where Microsoft choose to place it, you have it on your NAS since that time already, and now you have a chance to HELP and somehow .. prefer to NOT DOING IT.

And this is the ugly truth. Please do not stop this thread since I will open another.
I indented to write every day ... till someone will provide me this free driver ... to count the day from First Message till problem Solved on Almighty Microsoft website.

With my respect to all Brand Names and persons involved into my monologue (since, unfortunately, it is NOT a discussion on any kind)
