I have Samsung Netbook [Windows 7 Starter] and my Factory recovery CD, [so privacy and intent not issue]. The problem is that I forgot Windows password. Password can be reset using a USB However. I am not able to figure out how to create flash drive media option [the netbook has no CD drive, so using recovery CD is very inconvenient]. Does anyone know how to create the flash drive option to use for recovery and reset? I suppose I have the same question for a boot disk equivalent, since booting from the factory CD is a hassle. I am novice so I don't know how to create these boot disc type things on a flash drive.

Howdy, and welcome.

May want to re-read the rules page.
Passwords - Please do not ask for assistance with (or ways to bypass) a forgotten or unknown password, personal identification number (PIN) or any other type of access code that may be required on a computer, mobile device or web site. As there is no way to verify the actual situation or intent, no assistance will be provided and any such threads will be closed.
as a result, I'm closing this one.

thanks,

I don't know what a "Factory recovery CD" is, but if a CD was included with your Samsung netbook (w/o optical drive) purchase you should contact Samsung and request a USB "Factory recovery" flash drive instead.
