Resetting Admin password

I forgot my password into my account. How do I reset the password? When I try to reset my password, the computer will display " This feature requires removable media such as a floppy disk or a USB Flash Drive. Please insert a floppy disk or USB Flash Drive, and then try again." In the left hand corner of this box, it reads "No Drive". I've also reset the Supervisor password using the F2 setup. What do I do? HELP!
