    Hi,

    I was experiencing the same problem with Windows 10 build 10041.
    I've read all te posts in this thread, and you guys are extremely helpful, but unfortunately none of this worked for me.


    After some more googling I found this post bellow and it worked just fine to me. I hope it helps someone if nothing more is working.

    I was able to get by the 'Create Local Account Error' by doing the following:


    1. Install 9926 using ISO
    2. Skip Network connection setup
    3. Customize or Express Settings(Your choice)
    4. Create Local Account
    5. After Windows setup completes: reboot, no settings changed
    6. Login with Local Account
    7. Open Windows Explorer and find ISO install media and click Setup for 10041
    8. Follow normal install options as you would during downloaded upgrade.
    10. At the Welcome Back screen login with Local Account.
    11. Skip Network connection setup.
    12. Customize or Express Settings(Your choice)
    13. After successful login reinsert USB Setup drive and reboot again.
    14. Get to Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)
    15. Delete the OEM (Reserved) partition.
    16. Click 'X' in upper right corner to exit and reboot.
    17. Insert USB with Hirens.BootCD.15.2 and reboot.


    Use Hirens.BootCD.15.2 to boot and then delete the following directories created with upgrade:
    C:\EFI
    C:\RecoveryImage
    C:\Windows.old


    18. Reboot then go to Disk Management and then Extend Volume 'C' to regian the ~450md of space if you want.
    19. Reboot again and enjoy Windows 10 Build 10041.

    C:\EFI is created by clean install of 10041 (even if you do a BIOS install). Not sure what (if anything) it is for though.

    I renamed C:\EFI to C:\x-EFI without issue.

    I have a legacy BIOS machine though.

    I think it is an install error, the EFI folder on the install media got copied to the wrong place - I could be wrong, but I don't have UEFI to test that theory.

    UEFI-Based Computers

    When you deploy Windows® to an EFI-based or UEFI-based computer, you must format the hard disk drive or other persistent storage device that includes the Windows partition by using a GUID partition table (GPT) file system. Additional drives might use either the GPT or the master boot record (MBR) file format.
    A GPT-based drive might include the following partitions:

    • An EFI System Partition (ESP)

      Each bootable drive must contain an ESP. The computer boots to this partition.

      For Advanced Format Generation One (4-KB-per-sector) drives, the minimum size of this partition is 260 MB.

      For earlier 512-byte-per-sector drives, the minimum size of this partition is 100MB.
    • A Microsoft® Reserved Partition (MSR)

      We recommend that you add an MSR to each drive for disk management. The MSR is a reserved partition that does not receive a partition ID. It cannot store user data.

      The size of an MSR partition is 128 MB.
    • Up to 128 primary partitions

      You can use primary partitions to store files and utilities.

    OK, I am still having problems with this build 10049 and the Local Account creation. I think however I have figured out what is causing the issue, now I just need to figure out how to correct it. I have attached screen shots. The first two are on a machine that I am having problems creating a local account on. with anything 10031 or later. The second two are on a machine that is working fine. Notice the TCPIP settings on the machine that is having problems are grayed out at the properties field. I fact the whole stack configuration looks different. In build 9926 the machine that I am having problems with look like the second set of screen shots and I can configure. Puzzling!!!

    Here is just another piece of info about this debacle. I can remove the hard drive and install it into another Laptop then install Windows 10 Build 10049 and create a local account. Shutdown other Laptop and put hard drive back into the machine that I was having problems with and it boots just fine. I then can login with Local Account and create other Local Accounts with no problem. It just keeps getting more and more puzzling!!!

    This part is no surprise. Win 10 uses a generic key and drivers. It will run on any machine as long as the specs allows it (32 or 64 bit). Now if you install 3rd party drivers manually, that's another story.
