Getting an ISO
#

If you want to get an x64/x86 enterprise ISO, follow https://www.thewindowsclub.com/download-windows-10-enterprise-iso-with-media-creation-tool

Essentially, the command to use with the Windows Media creation tool is Retail /MediaArch x64 /MediaLangCode en-US /MediaEdition Enterprise.

Microsoft does not distribute Windows ARM ISOs as far as I know. The basic procedure is to download some ESD files from Microsoft, then convert it into an ISO.

If you use Parallels, just let it create a Windows VM automatically. It will make an Windows ARM Home/Pro ISO in your Downloads Folder, and you can use that for a manual installation later.

Another easy option is to use CrystalFetch on macOS to build the ISOs.

Microsoft account bypass
#

Follow this guide:

The easy method is to use no@thankyou.com and any password as the user.

Local account security questions bypass
#

Use an empty password while creating a local user, then set a password after the computer is done setting up.

Microsoft Defender Sandbox
#

Enable the sandbox for Microsoft Defender by running setx /M MP_FORCE_USE_SANDBOX 1 as an administrator.

Microsoft Defender Application Guard
#

Only relevant if running on bare metal or with nested virtualization. Extremely handy for visiting untrusted websites (which should be all websites). This also works with Office Enterprise, but I do not have Office Enterprise so I cant’t play with it.
