6. Once the Pop-up comes to agree with the Windows terms and conditions, click "Agreed".

7. Now we're asked to 'Sign in with Microsoft' account and we click on "Domain join instead".

8. Create an user-account with the password Welcome01!, because we already created the user-account "User", we need to create a second user. In our example we choose User02.

9. Next they ask for some security questions, we fill in "A" because we will delete the account in a later stadium anyway.

10. Choose the most privacy friendly options. We choose the following options: No, No, Send Required diagnostic data, No, No, No.
