have a esxi 3.5 that i had to reset the password for root, now after rebooting the host neither passwords work, i guess i can get the password set back to default by doing repair install, problem is i don't have the 3.5 media, all my vms now are 4.0 or later, can i use that media?

This KB can help you change forgotten root pwd:

Or, you can redownload the 3.5 install from VMware's site pretty easily and do a reinstall:
