HP Proliant DL560
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (64-bit)

I just aquired a Proliant DL 560,It was used as a spare and never installed on the network, it has Windows 2008 server installed. The previous owner (not computer literate) lost the password to log in. The log in screen comes up with administrator as user ID. I tried enter with no password but it won't accept that so a password has been installed. Can I just re-install the operating system to get around this? I am really new with servers, this is my first one. Any suggestions on how to make this work? Thanks for any information that will help.
