Rufus 3.19 adds mandatory pass Windows 11 22H2 Microsoft Account Requirement
Earlier this year in May, Microsoft made the Internet connection and Microsoft Account (MSA) compulsory for Windows 11 22H2 Insider builds. Thankfully, the OOBE \ BYPASSNRO workaround, which we found earlier, is still in operation, and later, one of our team members found a simple way to install Windows 11 22H2 on a local account.
Now Rufus has re-joined with its latest pre-release version 3.19 Beta, a new option to bypass a mandatory Microsoft account (MSA) Windows 11 22H2 add-on. This comes as part of a new discussion to select Windows 11 to customize Rufus.
Next to the MSA pass path, the new chat also features the TPM option and the Secure Boot bypass added with the previous version of Rufus 3.18 Beta.
Here is a new Beta changelog for Rufus 3.19 that explains these new features:
Add a new dialog to select Windows 11 for customization:
Secure Boot and TPM bypass are now delivered to this chat
It also allows you to bypass the mandate of the Microsoft Windows 11 11H2 account
(NB: The network MUST be temporarily disabled or disconnected in order to create a local account will be proposed)
Rufus 3.19 Beta also has a few other changes and improvements.
