Up until late December 2017, the way we installed operating systems here at Puget required us to to fully configure Windows and set up a user account for our customers, preventing end users from selecting the options and user name they might really want. It did have some added benefits, like allowing us to install requested software, but the process was inefficient and time consuming. Sparing you the grueling details, we have now moved to a much more refined and efficient process that allows you, the end user, to configure and set up Windows just the way you would like! This is excellent news! However, we also understand that opening up the box and booting the system up to a Windows setup screen can be somewhat daunting.
