How to install/upgrade to Windows 8.1 RTM without a Microsoft account (via: Super User)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/23

I’ve bitten by this too many times, so here is the link: How to install/upgrade to Windows 8.1 RTM without a Microsoft account.

And the steps:

  1. Almost af the bottom of the “Sign in to your Microsoft account” screen is a seemingly disabled “Create a new account” clickable area.
    Click it!
  2. Then you get into a new screen with a deceiving “Create a Microsoft account” title, but also a “Sign in without a Microsoft account” clickable area.
    Click there.
  3. Now create a new local account that is not bound to any email address.

Thanks magicandre1981 for the pictures in the linked post: very helpful!
