Rufus 3 20 Beta Creates Local Accounts 2

One update after the other. It seems Pete Batard has a lot of time on his hands. This new release comes with a nice new feature, it comes with an option to bypass the Microsoft account during the installation of Windows 11 22H2. As usual, the update comes with some fixes and improvements.

Changelog for Rufus 3.20 Beta

  • Enable applicable Windows User Experience options for Windows 10
  • Make Windows User Experience options persist between sessions
  • Add automatic local account creation and regional options duplication
    (NB: This is limited to creating an account with the same name as the current user and with an empty password that the user will be prompted to change after first reboot)
  • Add a workaround for ISOs that have a syslinux symbolic link to /isolinux/ (Knoppix)
  • Revert to offline insertion of registry keys for the TPM/SB/RAM bypass where possible (#1971)
  • Remove storage bypass, since this is a bogus bypass that doesn’t do anything (#1990)
  • Improve BIOS compatibility when displaying the “UEFI boot only” alert message
  • Fix Windows User Experience dialog appearing twice for Windows To Go (#1968)
  • Fix Windows User Experience options not being applied for ARM64 (#1996)
  • Fix Microsoft Account bypass not being applied unless TPM/SB/RAM bypass is selected (#1981)
