    Thanks for the detailed info.

    As for running a local account with 22H2, yes, I know multiple ways around that so that's a piece of cake

    With Windows 11 Home the setup won't start unless the Internet is connected. After you get past the first part you can disconnect the Internet. You are then able to just create a local account.

    With Windows 11 Pro it is easier because you can start with the Internet disconnected Like home you able to just create a local account.

    After the first boot and login you probably want to connect the Internet so you can get updates.

    BYW, while running the virtual machine with Hyper-V I can go into the settings and toggle the network off and on any time. When I upgraded to Windows 11 on this computer I had to physically disconnect and connect the Ethernet cable to do the same thing.

    Actually, that changes a bit in 22H2, where the restrictions are even greater, but that's ok. Regardless of whether I'm installing home or pro, 21H2 or 22H2, I have workarounds for all of it. It's effectively a non-issue for me.

    I just installed 22H2 Home and Pro. You are right. They did tighten it up. For both I have to keep the network connected at all times. However, I tried a new workaround and installed both without logging into a Microsoft account.
