I'm doing some testing with, Win8.1Pro

When it's starting to set itself up it ask for Windows Life I.D, I don't want to use it I just want to click on don't have one and for Win8Pro to allow me to continue the setup.
It's not, it's forcing me to enter a Windows Live I.D.
How can I over come this Setup issue on win8.1 Pro???

How are you "setting it up"?  CD? ISO file? Store?

Click on "Create a new account" then on the next page choose "Sign in without a Microsoft account".

Another victory over common-sense from Microsoft!

Anyone would think they want to harvest email addresses from the unwary!!

It's pretty hidden - this is the route you need (Win 8.1 screen shots)
Are these links deliberatly tiny?

Well... they are trying to promote their store, that's all. When you are logged in with a MS ID, there's one obstacle less between you willing to buy and MS willing to sell.
Of couse MS says it's all about cloud syncing... sure, but mainly? :)
