    Are you trying to upgrade from 7 to 10, or clean install 10? It's not clear from what you posted, not to me anyway.

    Do the install with no internet connection at all. After it is all installed, then connect to the internet for activation.

    I do believe the "check for updates" option during the install/upgrade is optional. You can select not to do it. Or as NavyLCDR posted, just disconnect from your network.
