Whoops, this is a virtinst bug. The boot device is actually supposed to
be 'fd', not 'floppy'. Fixed upstream now:

http://hg.fedorahosted.org/hg/python-virtinst/rev/4d0ea2274ffd

As a work around, you should be able to copy the XML that virtinst was
generating, change 'floppy' to 'fd', virsh define it and proceed from
there. Thanks for the report.
