SQL SERVER 2012 Enterprise (SP1)

I have a problem when I install SQL SERVER :
At the step of server configuration I want to modify the 2 Service Accounts (with a user I created on the domain) and I get 2 error messages (they are in french so I try to translate as good as I can) :

The identification informations you gave for the service "SQLAgent$NomInstanceNommé " are not valid.

The access name or the password of the SQL Server Service Account are not valid. Use the SQL Server Configuration Manager to update the Service Account.

So this is my question :
Is it possible to change the service accounts on installation and what are the conditions for this accounts ?

Thanks !

Yes, you can change the service accounts after the installation.
This can be done from surface area configuration.
