Cant you login to single-user mode, from there you can either, su into root, perhaps blank password, sudo a command if a member of "wheel" group and run passwd root and set a new password for the account.
I've found during failed installs it generally resets using a blank password "even if the installer enforces a password" you can still blank it.
