I agree and think that these two dialogs are presented to the user in the wrong order.

I think it's more logical to have "Who are you?" and then "Migrate Documents and Settings". Now it is the other way around.

I also think the order should be different. Then, in the second step, there could be an option to use the previously entered username of the first user or enter a new user.

That way, if the already added first user is used, the password and other data don't have to be entered twice, clearing the confusion.
