Try Pogo Stick

You need to make a bootable USB Key (use Rufus) to make the tool.

It should work on Server 2008

Easy.

Get yourself a bootable flash drive with the Windows Server or Desktop installer files on it. You only need the WinPE portion. You can use a .ISO Windows installer with RUFUS to create one.

Then use this Crack the Cred process to reset the password.

Lazesoft Suite Server Edition has the ability to reset admin passwords on a server.   (it will create a bootable CD or USB for you with capabilities of the entire Suite.  I believe they also have just a password reset tool for a lower price.
