Boot from a Server ISO or DART CD.

When you are in x:\Windows\System32 you have to execute the following commands.
 
- Copy UTILMAN.EXE UTILMAN.EXE.BAK
- Move CMD.EXE UTILMAN.EXE
 
Reboot the server, when at the login prompt, you hit the Windows key and press "U"
Issues this command on the new CMD prompt that just appeared.
 
NET USER Administrator "new password"
 
You've just changed the Administrator password and since this is a domain controller the domain admin password is changed. It's recovered...
