    Default BT4 VM - Password Recovery? :/

    Hi guys ;D
    First, yeah, that is a big surprise, I tried out BT4 for VMWare :O
    It worked (after some time) properly and I tried to play around.
    But when I changed my root password, it asked if it should reduce the password to 8 characters to avoid problems.
    I clicked yes... Maybe this was a mistake.
    The password doesnt work now, I tried with 8 characters, using normal keyboard and the numpad for symbols... (Just - and +)
    It just echos "Login Incorrect".
    Is there a password recovery function or so included? Or do I need to clean the VM-Image?
    Greetings
