Our New Install Process
If you have recently purchased a computer from Puget Systems, you may have noticed that you were required to set up Windows 10 upon the first boot up. What you may not know, is that this was not always the way that our systems acted right out of the box.
Up until late December 2017, the way we installed operating systems during the system build process allowed us to perform that set up for you. It allowed us to fully configure Windows and to install/perform any special tweaks you, the customer, requested. This is no longer possible under our new install process. Like most successful businesses, over-time, our processes and procedures must change. This was the case with the way we were installing operating systems. The process we were originally conducting 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. I have created this guide to walk you through the process and offer advice along the way. I hope you enjoy!
When an internet connection is active during the Out of Box Experience, you will be strongly encouraged to login with a Microsoft account.
For an easier time creating a Local account instead of signing into a Microsoft Account:
- Physically disconnect your Ethernet cable
- Do not connect to a WiFi network when prompted – select SKIP in the bottom left
