    Connecting to Microsoft account while installing

    Usually, when installing windows, I'd be prompted to enter a microsoft account during the installation.
    Now I did it twice today (trying to reinstall on my laptop) and I didn't get prompted to do so. Why ?

    I know I can connect to microsoft account afterwards, but I'd prefer to do it during the installation.

    Did you have internet access at that point in the install? I see it is a laptop, which is probably WiFi, which you probably were not connected to at that point in the install, especially if you are connecting to password protected WiFi.
