1./ This link above is a part 1 of Reset Admin Password Procedure. You can use following link for full details of backup and reset password admin from previous configuration.

2./ If you use your method as in using maintainer account, try insert Serial No. Only, not include FG100A.

Good luck
Have you tried the default of just 'admin' and blank password?
