quote: You can keep your Internet connection enabled. When a screen called Connect this PC to your Microsoft account appears it will ask you for Email Address and Password (for Outlook.com or similar Microsoft service). If you have one you may put it in or if you don’t have it (or use Gmail instead), you have an option to create one. I suppose you want neither otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right?1. If you don’t want to create Microsoft account enter some invalid email here for example: Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: whatever you like, doesn’t matter (I entered 12345678).2. Windows will now check this account and conclude that there was a problem with logging into this account (as it obviously doesn’t exist).3. On the side a text will appear – “The email address or password is incorrect. If you don’t remember your password, create a local account now and set up your Microsoft account later.”4. Click on create a local account now part of the text and you’re now creating a local account.
