      Thanks additionally for the links and the PDF formatted guides for Windows 11 setup for Consumers and Businesses. An article like this one, plus those references, shows how much thought and work you’ve put into helping clarify and simplify the upgrade process for all of us. Thanks, Susan!

      I will be doing a part 2 that will include recommendations for two factor, and other security settings.

      Figured I should spin up a Hyper-V VM of Win11 to begin poking around.  I especially wanted to review the default “crappified” version of Win 11.  For our Windows 10 installations, we run a “decrapifier” script, which has been very successful in cleaning up the mess.

      Since you recommend not running a “decrapifier”, I thought a quick VM install of Win 11 v22H2 would be simple.  Then I ran into the “need internet” to continue issue.  The VM is isolated, and can’t phone home to mother Microsoft, so I couldn’t use the generic “no@thankyou.com” email address trick.

      Instead, I found a trick posted on other site that worked, at least for me.  When reaching the “need internet” screen, press [Shift] + [F10] to open a command prompt.  At the command prompt, type OOBE\BYPASSNRO and hit enter.  The VM will reboot.  Now, at the “need internet” screen, the “I don’t have internet” option is available.

      Just thought I’d drop this here for anyone else wanting to spin up a copy of Win 11, without needing to connect it to the internet.  Now, time to see what manual “decrapifying” needs to be done!
