    How to 'Create account' with a non-functioning OS?


    Yesterday I offered to set up my wife's new HP laptop with Windows 10. Everything went smoothly until the "Sign in with Microsoft" screen. It called for an email address, and as it is my wife's computer I entered hers. The response was "Invalid email". For a horrible moment I thought we had bought a brand-new computer that was non-functional because it couldn't activate Windows. I was also baffled by the "invalid" message since the email account is in use every day.

  2. Cannot recover Windows 8 OS, error that I have not created an account

    Hi,

    As per the added information, I suggest that you run the command below to deactivate the administrator account and check if you will be able to roll back to the old OS that was installed prior to Windows 10.

    Steps to: Disable Built-in administrator.

      • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
      • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open Command Prompt.
      • Type the following command and hit Enter:
      • net user administrator /active: no

    To roll back to the previous OS, you can follow the steps mentioned in the previous post and after selecting
    Reset This PC select Factory Settings. This will revert your PC back to the original OS that was installed when the PC was purchased.

    Note: Create the Media Creation Tool to perform the above action.

    Hope this helps
