    Using MS Media Creator Problem; Getting Past The Account Setups ? Help


    Hello,

    I really thought I had it, but...
    As I wrote before, i have a Dell XPS 8900 which got totally corrupted due to a MS update.

    So, per suggestions, I created a MS Media Creator USB stick. Did it from another pc
    Ran it, and it really seemed to work fine.

    Booted up the bad pc with it, and it seemed to be doing everything.

    To say i was happy, is an understatement.

    But, during the Account Setup phase, it would not go any further until
    I give it a Text key or number, or phone number. Wanted it, so it could send me back some kind of code "key", or somethings

    Have no idea what they want; I'm 81 now, and don't do any texting.
    No idea what it is, even.

    Tried putting in my cel phone number, but it wouldn't take it.

    Any idea how to get past this screen ?

    you would think there would be an option to set up the MS Account later, or not to set it up at all, but apparently ot.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    :)

    Hi again Caleb.

    It seems you don't' have Fall Creators Version 1709 so let's get that installed as it often solves problems like you're having and you need it anyway.

    If the Media Creation Tool will not install and run Upgrade Now once installed, even after trying several restarts to get it to install properly, then install it to another more stable PC to create the media or download the ISO to stick or DVD. Transfer the
    media, open media or click on ISO to mount it, right click Setup to Run as Administrator.

  3. Creator update problem

    After much searching and no help, as usual from the MS support as nothing from MS has helped in any way, I tripped over a comment regarding the media pack for Windows 10 build 1703, ie Creator. I then remembered that after the Anniversary update there
    were various problems which were only fixed after downloading media pack for that build.

    After the Creator update, I lost photos as well as video playback, now after downloading the media pack for 1703 it's all fixed!

    Robert,

    You can avoid setting up an MSAccount by either
    1 running the installation whilst the computer is not connected to the internet, or
    2 using the procedure shown in section 22 of Clean Install Windows 10

    I sometimes get a message when accessing my Hotmail.com or Outlook.com accounts, particularly from a different computer than usual, where I have to provide the last 4 digits of my phone number which will get me a text message or phone call to verify my Microsoft Account, only a slight inconvenience.

    Hi there
    I think the OP said he doesn't do texting !! (I hate it as well although I'm not nealy 82 !!!).

    When creating Windows at install time the easiest is to simply when the account screen comes up click the "Continue with Offline Account"

    Can't post image because I'm on my Linux server currently doing some installs and testing.

    It's not intuitive -- the old method used to say "Use a Local Account" -- but I think the whole idea these days is to obfuscate the whole process --by confusing users most of them will go automatically into an Ms account -- and Welcome to the world of SPAM and unwanted commercials -- not from Ms itself but all these names / accounts etc are bought by 3rd parties who then target individuals with insidious "special offers".

    Cheers
