just use

For i=1 To 25
   Dim tb as textBox
   tb=New TextBox()
   tb.ID="FirstName" & i
   tb.Columns=12
   Page.Controls.Add(tb)
Next

no <% %> tags

When i run that I get back an error

The Controls collection cannot be modified because the control contains code blocks (i.e. <% ... %>).

you could also try this:

<%For i = 1 to 25%>
   <asp:TextBox id="FirstName<%=i %>" Columns="12" Runat="Server" />" )

<%Next%>

But I strongly recomend you use a method I provided before
