Ok im so lost. My Uncle past away and i was left some things , and one was his laptop. Its a Sony Vaio. When I turn it on it says " James " and asks for a password. I dont know it...so I read a few forums and it says boot into safe mode > Admin. I did so, and its password protected. Bleh... I read about the obliha livecd , but quickly learned it doesnt boot discs. Its a dvd rom drive to. I then tried putting in a windows xp pro disc ( thats the os i want on there ) and it doesnt boot up. So i went searching again and i found many replys to boot from a floppy! So i went out and bought the attachment ( im broke now...) for a floppy drive and i have 3 1/2in floppys. I put one in , to see if it boots to it and it said " this is not a system disc, please place one in" Presss any key to continue..... I placed the regular windows xp pro install disc in...and quickly learnt after iso ripping it ... it was extreamly to large to place on a floppy... SOOOOO MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I REFORMAT WITH A FLOPPY??
