Right after you install DNN, make a backup of your web.config file.
Then change the passwords like before and if it fails again, go back and check the machinekeys in the web.config file to make sure those are still the same (or you can just replace the web.config with the backup you made).
This isn't supposed to happen, but if you do this test, it will help to narrow down what is happening.
Another way to change the host and/or admin password is to make them different in the install template. You will find this in the Portals\_default\dotnetnuke.install.resources file. This is an xml file that you can open with notepad and change the passwords
for those accounts.
Change that template before you install, and DNN will set the passwords to whatever you put in that file at the time of installation.
