My password is not recognized, but when I try resetting my password, the following message appears, any advice? "This feature requires removable media, such as floppy disk or USB flash drive. Please insert a floppy disk or connect a USB flash drive, and then try again"?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you referring to a login password to your computer or is this a BIOS power on password? You can check out the wiki here on how to reset the password in 10 easy steps.

    What OS is there? Probably Windows, as the tag indicated. How did you install the OS meant, by CD/DVD or by flash drive. It is necessary to change boot sequence on BIOS from hard disk to removable media like CD/DVD or flash drive. Check if the same settings there, and assuming somehow boot from hard disk is disable. Check BIOS first & make sure this is not happened & the first boot sequence is hard disk.

    Moreover that, the BIOS setup can be invoked by a key like Delete/F2/F4 or whatever it is, that depends on computer configurations/manufacturer setup. Also you can try with repair disk to overcome this issue like Windows 7 repair disk.

    I have seen this issue occur when you are attempting to log into a machine and a windows domain because the profile is damaged, and was initially installed from removable media.  You may have to repair this profile using the removable media to reinstall the profile.
