BES install on WinServ2k8 R2 64, prompts "Please enter a valid password"

Hi everyone, I posted a related question in a different thread, but the initial question was somewhat different, so I've decided to post it here to be more specific instead of deviating the other thread.  Once I get this one resolved, I'll go back to the other if the problem arises again (https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/26709384/BES-server-administration-Page-cannot-be-displayed.html).

I'm at a point where I've installed exchange on a server already, everything is working great, and have attempted to install BES 5.02 on a different system, both on the same domain.  The first time I installed the BES software, it seem to have gone well without a glitch, until I tried to run the administration services console, which would give me a "page not found" type of error (please look at link above for some of the info).  I had it working after a while, seemed to take a VERY long time to actually run (the BAS-AS service specifically) without stopping.  At which point, attempting to log into the admin section would prompt me with "Please enter a valid password".  I figured I should restart, as I must have missed something.  I went back to the blackberry website and looked through the details.

What I decided to do was remove the install completely, including MS SQL 2005 it comes with, I cleaned out the registry entries, and the application folder as well.  Now I'm at the point where the BES install arrives to the screen asking for the BESadmin credentials (I had to log in as to do the install), but it won't accept my password.  I can't figure out what's wrong with it as I can log into the domain using that account without an issue.  In fact, I can browse shares on the domain controller from the system I'm installing the BES software.  I would really appreciate help with this, it's rendering me extremely frustrated.

I've attached a screenshot of what I get stuck at.
