Windows 8 lockout predicament

On my Win 8 Pro box, I had just one user: sandettie. That was in the Administrators group, of course. I made a new user, sandettieadmin, to split off admin privs to that user. I then took sandettie OUT of the admin group. I logged out, and now it only shows sandettieadmin as an available user. Problem: I immediately forgot the password for sandettieadmin. There is no <-- arrow next to the sandettieadmin user in the login screen. How do I force windows to let me log on as the other user?

Can I take advantage of $40 Windows 8 if I don't have an older Windows?

I currently don't have any version of Windows installed on my PC (it's a Mac). I would like to install Windows on a Bootcamp partition. I noticed that Microsoft has a special offer where they are selling a Windows 8 download for $40 through Jan. 31. That's a good price for me. The possible catch: Microsoft seems to be saying that I need to have an earlier version of Windows installed in order to use that download. I can't quite tell whether they are serious about this. Do I really need to have a preexisting Windows install to take advantage of the $40 Windows 8 offer? [more inside]
