Hi Lanydauhan3500,

Please go to the My computer icon, right click on it, select properties, and than go to device manager.

Confirm that you have a floppy disk drive recognized by the system, and there is to yellow mark on it.  If you do not have a floppy disk drive recognized by the system, then insert a flash drive, and again check that it is recognized in the device manager.  After that you can create the password reset disk.
