Default From a Floppy or jump drive

My trech teacher wants us tomorrow to recover his password that "he forgot" he knows it he is jsut testing us. Well i cant burn a cd becasue my burner is jacked up so i have to do this from a floppy or a jump drive. I dont know how to go about this as far as programs or in the console or using a linux cd to gain access to his pc. im running out of idea as to what to do to remove the password or jsut to get in from the login screen any ideas ?

you prolly couldn't do it without removing the HD, if you can't burn a cd.

you have to be able to change the boot order, if you want to crack it by booting to a cd.

it could be easy but maybe time consuming if you had console access.
