    Refer the following Method:

    Create an ASR Floppy Disk
    The following steps can create an ASR floppy disk from an ASR backup operation:

    1. Format a 1.44 megabyte (MB) floppy disk and insert the disk into the floppy disk drive of the computer.
    2. In System Tools, start the Backup program. When the Backup and Restore Wizard is displayed, click Next.
    3. Click Restore Files and Settings, and then click Next.
    4. In the What to Restore dialog box, select the media that contains the ASR backup. Ensure that the media is inserted.
    5. Expand the Automated System Recovery Backup Set that corresponds to the ASR floppy disk that you want to create.
    6. Expand the second instance of the drive letter that contains the system files. Expand the Windows_folder/Repair folder.
    7. Click the following files from this repair folder: Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif, and then click Next.
    8. At the Completing Backup or Restore Wizard screen, click Advanced.
    9. At the Where to Restore screen, set the Restore Files to: dialog box to Single Folder, and then set the Folder Name dialog box to the root of your floppy drive, for example, "A:\".
    10. Click Next. The other options in this wizard are optional and do not affect the transfer of files to the floppy disk. When the wizard is finished, the files are copied to the location that you had previously specified. The ASR floppy disk is ready for use in the event of an ASR restore operation.

    If you want to create ASR disk , and many people gets failed to create disk during the initial install you can create it manually by copying the contents of your windows\system32\repair to the root directory of a floppy disk.
