Locked out of server after AD configuration error

I installed Windows 2000 server. After that, I installed AD on the server. I made some mistakes in giving a full DNS name, so I removed AD from that server. Now it is not allowing me to log in using even the administrator username. How can I get in?
Try rebooting into safe mode or recovery console. If that fails, you can attempt to use a password recovery tool, such as NTLocksmith from  Wininternals.com. Otherwise, you'll have to reinstall.
