Post no administrator account

So I was trying to set up a different administrator account and change the one I already had to a standard account, but when I finished, both accounts became standard accounts and there isn't an administrator. Now when I try to fix it, a box comes up asking for an administrator password, but has no place to type and there isn't an administrator account to have a password anyway.

I'm not sure why this is possible, and i would appreciate a way to fix it.

EDIT: never mind, I fixed it by going into safe mode (F8 while booting up)
