    How to Bypass Microsoft Login in Win 8.1 Preview


    Hello all,

    Apparently, Microsoft has established a new requirement for the 8.1 Preview where one must use a valid Microsoft account login (I could not find an easy way to establish just a local login). With that said, you can create an auto-login process, using your Microsoft account, so you can bypass the requirement to manually type a password. This bypass is only recommended for those who maintain their PC/Laptop in a secure environment:

    I think disconnecting the PC from the Internet is pretty easy

    And I bet AutoUnattend.xml will work.

    I guess I'll never know because I went back to Win 7 but thanks for the tip.
