This issue should be fixed in 8.1 - when you go back, you can change the
password, and the account isn't created until the db is actually
installed.

That said, your solution for this problem is to simply remove the
account (using net user /delete or the MMC snapin or whatever method you
prefer) and start over. The installer will detect that it's not there
and ask you to create it again.
