I'm not sure what you tried originally (because this thread is broken 
for some reason), but couldn't you just create another admin user in the 
install tool? And login with that new account.

If I remember correctly you can't change the password in BE in the root 
of the site with Web/List module (BE user records). You have to change 
the password with the User/Setup-module/Change password.

Sorry if this is completely another subject..
