Here is an article to reset for firewall to factory default configuration.  

If you have a backup of the configuration you can restore it afterwards.

1./ This link above is a part 1 of Reset Admin Password Procedure. You can use following link

http://kc.forticare.com/default.asp?id=999&Lang=1 for full details of backup and reset password admin from previous configuration.

2./ If you use your method as in http://www.afterschool.dk/documents/network/fortigate-password-reset/ using maintainer account, try insert Serial No. Only, not include FG100A.

Good luck
