Lost Administrator password Win 2008 Server

I have lost the password to the Adminstrator account on a Win 2008 Server X64 with raid. Does anyone know how I can reset/retrieve it without having to re-install the OS?

You could try this, not sure about 64 bit
At the windows log in screen press CTRL+ALT+Delete keys twice,it should then show the classic log in box.
Type Administrator in the user name box and leave the password box blank.
Now press Enter and you should be able to log in, then you can go to Control Panel/User accounts and reset your account password.
