Are you sure you set a password specifically for the name Administrator (most users never seem to) - rather than just having a single user with Admin rights. If you didn't then you should be able to log on with the specific name Administrator without entering a password.

If Administrator, as such, is not an option on the logon screen then pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL at this point should bring up a box for you to input it into.

Presumably you are using NTFS and not FAT.
