From the screenshot above I decided I didn’t want to use my Microsoft Account (formally known as a Windows Live account) . Therefore I clicked Sign up (don’t worry about signing up, I have a process to pass the sign up stage on the next screen).

Step 10 – Create a Microsoft account

From the screenshot above, I didn’t create a new account, therefore you can click the text at the bottom Connect my account later.

Step 11 – Create an account for this PC

Since I didn’t use a Microsoft Account, I will need to create a local account on the Windows 10 installation. I filled in the required details on the screenshot above and clicked Next.

Step 11 – Windows is completing the install ..
