Not sure. If it is Xp, do not click on "repair using console".Go on with install windows option until it detects current installed os. Then you will get another repair option that'll take another 45mins to complete. But not sure whether the admin password will be reset.

when i press enter to install it it does not provide repairing option, but i get this message: you are trying to install the Os on a partition that already contains an OS. installing multiple operating systems on a single partition is not recommended.

then it gives option to cancel or continue.

Depends on the install CD that you use. Some offer repair options, some don't. I guess that are certain checks (undocumented) to see if a repair option should be offered.

You may want to try Hiren Boot CD, it offers various tools to recover Windows password. If no luck, your best bet is to backup all your data and re-install the OS from scratch.
