    Download this Offline Password & Registry Editor, Bootdisk / CD

    The bootdisk should support most of the more usual disk controllers, and it should auto-load most of them. Both PS/2 and USB keyboard supported.

    Its tested on Windows NT 3.51, WIndows NT 4 (all versions and SPs), Windows 2000 (all versions & SPs), Windows XP (all versions, also SP2 and SP3), Windows Server 2003 (all SPs), Windows Vista 32 and 64 bit, and some say it works on Windows Server 2008 (32 & 64 bit).

    Re: Reset Windows Server 2008 administrator password

    There is another solutions also available like Password Changer . There is a support for Windows 2008.

    Active Password Changer is designed for resetting local administrator and user passwords on Windows XP / VISTA / 2008 / 2003 / 2000 & Windows 7 systems in case an Administrator's password is forgotten or lost. You do not need to re-install and re-configure the operating system.

    Forgotten password recovery software has a simple user interface, supports multiple hard disk drives, detects several SAM databases (if multiple OS were installed on one volume) and provides the opportunity to pick the right SAM before starting the password recovery process. It displays a list of all local users. The software user simply chooses the local user from the list to reset the password.

    Other Windows login security restrictions like 'Account is disabled', 'Password never expires', 'Disable Force Smart Card Login', 'Account is locked out', 'User Must Change Password at Next Logon' and 'Logon Hours' can be changed or reset.

    When my company administrator gone with Windows Server locked, I used a professional Windows Server Password Resetting software Lazesoft Recover My Password Server Edition to clean the Server local password and reset the domain controller administrator password.

    I have tried Password Changer. It doesn't work..I eventually change my admin password using Password Recovery Bundle from top-password. I guess that Password Changer doesn't support domain password resetting on Windows Server 2008.
