Can the A: letter be associated to a Virtual Drive in a Virtual Machine in Hyper-V, Win Server 2016?

I can see that drive letters start from B: onward, but there is no A:.
I have successfully attached a virtual FDD, but drive letters still start from B:
We use A: as a hidden drive for internal purposes.
Does this mean I will have to change our system to use B: as the hidden drive instead of A:?

Thanks for any guidance.

Ah ... you're already using a drive lettered A: for a different purpose, and you want to use A: again for a virtual FDD?  That won't work; it has to be one or the other.  Please explain more fully so we can understand the situation.

Yes we use A: with other machines connected to the network to identify another physical drive, so we can hide it from certain users.
But, when I created the virtual machine drive A: was not available and it is not connected to the network or using any of the Group Policies from the Domain as it is not on the Domain.

PS: I have attached another virtual drive to the virtual machine (which is recognised as D:), but I want to change it to A:

The virtual machine is going to be used as a test workstation.

I have since removed the Virtual FDD to see if drive letter A: is available - No it's not.
