The Windows 11 22H2 Update will introduce a Microsoft account required for all new installations, regardless of whether you're using the Pro or Home version of the operating system.

The 22H2 update fixes a few Windows 11 issues and adds some quality-of-life enhancements.

Rufus USB formatting is a simple solution to this problem. It can create USB media for Windows as well as other operating systems.

Rufus already offers flags to disable Windows 11's system requirements checks from the installer. This eliminates the need for tedious Windows Registry edits or other workarounds.

The beta version 3.19 will remove the requirement that a Microsoft account is required for new installations. This makes setting up a Windows PC easier than using a traditional local account.

Before creating your Windows 11 user account, ensure your computer is not connected to the Internet when setting it up.

This trick was used to bypass the Microsoft account requirement in Windows 11 Pro and later versions of Windows 10, but it is now completely removed from Windows 11 22H2. Rufus tools merely return to pre-22H2 status.

Rufus can be used to bypass Windows 11's system requirements. Your system will remain "unsupported" even after Windows 11 is installed.

This means you will have to endure reminders about unsupported hardware and the vague threat of Microsoft stops providing security patches and updates for those systems.

On the other hand, Rufus doesn't prevent Windows 11's security features and TPM from working after the OS has been installed.

Rufus allows you to create one USB installer that covers both supported and non-supported hardware.

Microsoft offers its media creation tools to people who wish to create USB install drives for Windows 10 and 11. However, it doesn't offer the same options for company requirements.
