  • Don’t sign in with a Microsoft account during initial setup of PC. Create a local account, then link a Microsoft account if necessary later.
  • Add credentials for network in the “Credential Manager”
  • Change setting in “Advanced sharing settings” to use user accounts and not Homegroup.
  • (Mac OS X) Edit /etc/smb.conf, add workgroup = WORKGROUP and master browser = auto.
