You can reset the system password with a conversational bootstrap.
Do a conversational bootstrap (B/1). When you get to the sysboot prompt, type 'SET/STARTUP OPA0:', and 'CONTINUE'. You should eventually be greeted with a dollar prompt. Type 'SET NOON'. Then set default to SYS$SYSTEM and run authorize. You can reset your SYSTEM account password. When you are done, exit authorize and type '@SYS$SYSTEM:STARTUP'.
When you are finished, shutdown the machine and do another conversational bootstrap. At the sysboot prompt type 'SET/STARTUP SYS$SYSTEM:STARTUP.COM' and 'CONTINUE'.
