Do a factory reset first.

If you only want a local user account and not MS Account, on initial setup of Windows 10, do not connect to any network (i.e. the Internet) before you create your user account.

If your computer is connected to the Internet, you will not be prompted to create any local user account and the only option is to create a MS account.
