The Admin1 account should be deleted because it is not fully setup (It's not properly added to any groups, doesn't have an email address, etc.)

IIRC, the password can be inserted directly into the database for the user as an MD5 password. It will then be converted when the user logs in. At least that used to work in 3.0.x...not sure with 3.1.x
