    As stated, you won't have to worry about that at all (!) as long as you unplug your network cord for those 30 minutes of installing.
    Then when the desktop loads for the first time you plug it in again and are ready for activation.

    If you are asking how to install without MSA creation (solely local acc. installation):

    As long as you set it up from a physical medium just stay d/c'ed from the net and you wont even get to any point where you have to skip something, it will automatically skip the MSA creation. Also if you are using a statically configured IP network anyway then it will be automatically skipped as well.
    Thanks, all input appreciated!

    In the leaked builds, there is an option to Skip this step which takes you to the Local Account Setup. This may be the procedure for the next public release...
    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)
