Since you dont have a 'postgres' user, Just give any password and the a 
new user 'postgres' will be created with the supplied password which 
then will be used as the service account owner of PostgreSQL service.

In case you have a postgres user pre-existing on your system, supply its 
password when asked by the installer.

You can anytime change the password by going to administartive tasks--> 
Users and groups ..
