Way-6: Using Local or Temporary Account

A temporary account is needed when this error occurs and prevents the user’ profile from loading. Changes to desktop settings and files are lost when a session ends because the temporary profile is removed. Doing this is tough enough and expert hands are necessary to solve an error using this method.

A local administrator account may help you solve the OOBEAADV10 error. As Windows 10 or Windows 11 does not have an account during the Out of box experience phase, it proceeds with the region selection and encounters a bug. To cope, you must establish a dummy account for the OOBE to utilize, which you can remove later. The procedures are:

  1. Run – Command Prompt.
  2. Copy the following commands and replace the newuserpassword and newusername as per your choice:
[net user administrator /active:yes
net user /add newusername newuserpassword
net localgroup administrators newusername /add
cd %windir%\system32\oobe
  1. Then, hit – Enter.
  2. The command prompt will proceed automatically. It may take 15-20 minutes and may shut down the PC as well.
  3. Turn onPC and it will show the login screen now.
  4. Sign in with your given username and password.
  5. Once the desktop is loaded, press – WinKey+R.
  6. Type lusrmgr.msc and press Enter.
  7. Now, click – Users.
  8. Right-click on – Administrators.
  9. Select – Properties.
  10. A wizard will appear, now check – Account is Disabled.
  11. Click – Apply and OK.
  12. Now right-click on – Defaultuser0.
  13. Select – Delete.
  14. Next, Press – WinKey+I.
  15. Select – Accounts.
  16. Go to – Your info.
  17. Click on – Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
