    That isn't actually the case!

    W8 tells me that my pc is not connected to the internet and hence it cannot verify the password. It also tells me to use the last used password [maybe Local Account] to sign in!

    Read what you are typing "W8 tells me that my pc is not connected to the internet". To sign into Live you need internet! W8 connects to the internet during startup, so if it fails due to your network password requirement, you cannot log in because you have associated your Live password.

    Don't know why i have to retype all this.

    "W8 will assume your Live password to be your internet access password."

    ​This is not True!

    What i meant there was W8 will assume you have connected to the internet access and that it uses your LIVE pasword to authenticate.

    Have you tried installing W8 WITH internet access READY (no need to put in password to to access the internet)?
