I assume you have installed Server Core Edition which is why you cannot use the GUI interface?

The Net user command for changing a password is quite simply

net user Administrator <newpassword>

You must run the command from an elevated command prompt.

If you need the command with the /passwordreq switch, it would be

net user Administrator /passwordreq:yes
