HP Proliant DL 160 server

We're trying to install the OS on a Proliant DL 160 G5 server but have been unsuccessful installing the appropriate SATA/SAS controller drivers.  At first we were trying to install Windows 2003 server OS but have now installed (seemingly) Windows 2008 server.  This is our first attempt with Server 2008, we were unaware that the Administrator password needed to be changed at first login and it is not letting us change the password.  The server has not been joined to our domain yet so not clear as to why server is telling us the password doesn't meet domain policy for length and complexity.  Can not login to make any changes etc until this hurdle cleared.  Since there's no SmartStart functionality, we weren't able to set up the disks on the server the way we wanted so could this contribute to why the password issue has cropped up?  Anyone have any thoughts or ideas?

We did have the password long enough but must not have been strong enough.  We will try adding even more complexity and see if this will allow the login.
