When installing Windows 11, if you want to get around having to connect to the internet and login with a MS account, you can enter the command prompt and run:
oobe\bypassnro

I always thought oobe was the command and \bypassnro was an option switch, and I found it completely odd there was no space in there. I was wrong. The command prompt opens in C:\Windows\System32. In \Windows\System32, is a folder called oobe. And inside the oobe folder is bypassnro.cmd. So, that is what you are running with the command oobe\bypassnro.

The bypassnro.cmd is a script which contains:
@echo off
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE /v BypassNRO /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
shutdown /r /t 0

So, it is really a registry key that causes oobe to not require a network, and then subsequently allow you to create a local account on a clean install.

I always thought oobe was the command and \bypassnro was an option switch, and I found it completely odd there was no space in there. I was wrong. The command prompt opens in C:\Windows\System32. In \Windows\System32, is a folder called oobe. And inside the oobe folder is bypassnro.cmd. So, that is what you are running with the command oobe\bypassnro.

The bypassnro.cmd is a script which contains:
@echo off
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE /v BypassNRO /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
shutdown /r /t 0

So, it is really a registry key that causes oobe to not require a network, and then subsequently allow you to create a local account on a clean install.
Of course, now this is known, what is the betting MS remove that cmd file in release version?

Probably a good idea to make a copy now, so it can be added to the installation usb to save having to type the command in manually.

Naturally, MS could go one stage further and fully hard code to require network.

I think they have a Whack-A-Mole department for this sort of thing.

Edit: Just tested it, and it works great - some minor points to note:

1) You have to press shift+f10 at screen asking for internet, as it does no work if you do it earlier in oobe process (at least not from first screen)

2) Upshot of this is you go through oobe from scratch, so no point in adding additional keyboards first time round before you press shift+f10.

3) Obviously, disconnect from internet, before install OS. If installing on Hyper-V, do not forget to change virtual switch setting to "not connected" (I presume other vms can do similar).
Alternatively, disconnect from internet on host (I prefer to do former so internet can still be accessed from host).

I have made video for that in this video, i will show you how to set up Windows 11 without an active Internet connection. Microsoft now requires an active Internet connection to set up a computer with both Windows 11 Home and Pro. That requirement became mandatory with the release of build 22557.

Works either way though, with or without the space between OOBE and \bypassnro.

oobe\bypassnro is no longer a valid method to install without network with Build 25193.
It ends up with this screen. whatever that means?

It appears you may be trying to install on a PC that has been supplied already enrolled in Windows Autopilot. This is a technology for Enterprises to deploy their custom system configuration to an employee's PC when they first connect to their network, and thereafter to manage it. Either that, or the ISO you are trying to install for some reason requires Autopilot.

    fully 'Windows 11 ready' laptop. Windows 10 C: partition migrated from my old unsupported 'main machine' then upgraded to 11. A test migration ran Insider builds for 2 months. When 11 was released on 5th October it was re-imaged back to 10 and was offered the upgrade in Windows Update on 20th October. Windows Update offered the 22H2 Feature Update on 20th September 2022.

It appears you may be trying to install on a PC that has been supplied already enrolled in Windows Autopilot. This is a technology for Enterprises to deploy their custom system configuration to an employee's PC when they first connect to their network, and thereafter to manage it.


That is not the case, mine is a personal Laptop. The same command still works fine with previous Build 25188.
Other users have verified the same issue.
Looks MS closed that door for installing without Network connection. 🤷‍♂️

It is possible all they have done is remove the batch file that does the regedit.

Try creating the batchfile manually from @NavyLCDR's post, and see if that works?


Edit: just tested it on 25193 and indeed the batch file is still there, and runs ok, but then on oobe restart, it falls over as @fg2001gf11F says.

This feels more like a bug to me rather than removing option - if option was removed, I would expect it to return back to ask you to reconnect to internet page.

Of course, it could be the "whack-a-mole" department as I said earlier flexing their muscles LOL.

I've already restored a working system.
I'll check again with the next Build. Clearly, they changed something with this build 25193. 😎

Yes. I just checked, the bypassnro.cmd is still there with the same parameters.

@echo off
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE /v BypassNRO /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
shutdown /r /t 0

If this build included the code for Autopilot version 18362.267 then it's a known Autopilot bug that has been resolved in later versions. If so it should go away in the next Dev build.

Windows Autopilot reports an AUTOPILOTUPDATE error during OOBE after sysprep, reset, or other variations. This issue typically happens if you reset the OS or used a custom sysprepped image.
